Having a Ball

| March 19, 2014 | Parties National

More than 1,000 guests helped the Children’s Research Fund celebrate raising more than $2 million for pediatric medical research at the nonprofit’s annual Children’s Ball at the Hilton Chicago. Swirling spotlights and a line of cheering pom-pom girls welcomed the evening’s featured researchers, who were introduced by none other than Chicago Bulls announcer Ray Clay. A dinner of Mediterranean salad and a dual entree of petite filet with eggplant Bolognese and Moroccan spice-rubbed salmon was followed by a fast-paced live auction featuring a supremely luxurious lot: a behind-the-scenes experience at the Van Cleef & Arpels workshop in Paris. –Photos by Garbo Productions
