Diamonds Are Forever

| October 4, 2013 | Parties National

THE PARTY More than 500 business, health care and civic leaders sparkled in their gowns and tuxedos at Union Station for the 41st annual Gala for The Auxiliary of NorthShore University HealthSystem at Evanston and Glenbrook hospitals. THE SCENE The event, appropriately themed Diamonds & Dice... How Lucky Can You Get? was lavish in every respect, from the silent auction to the diamond raffle to the lively casino-themed decor courtesy of Joseph Leigh Designs. A Marilyn Monroe look-alike with The Steve Edwards Orchestra kept guests rocking and rolling all through the night. THE HIGHLIGHTS The DodoNA Project: DNA Prediction to Improve Neurological Health benefited from the more than $500,000 raised from the evening. DodoNA is known for its visionary research toward predicting, preventing and curing diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and ALS. Photography by Jon Hillenbrand and Bob Kusel
