Happy Trails, Mr. Mayor

| June 28, 2011 | Parties

The Party: The Women’s Board of The Art Institute of Chicago invited 900 guests to Millennium Park to celebrate Richard and Maggie Daley the month before Mayor Daley’s historic tenure came to a close. The Players: With guests Rahm Emanuel and New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg, plus remarks by JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon and family members Bill Daley and Nora Daley, the evening also featured a performance by Heather Headley and the Soul Children of Chicago. The Highlights: After cocktails in the Modern Wing, guests moved to a Millennium Park tent for dinner and a video tribute to the Daleys by Bill Kurtis Productions. Dry eyes were scarce when a surprise cake was rolled onstage as the crowd sang a heartfelt “Happy Birthday” to the outgoing mayor.
