Support Children's Memorial Cardiac Services

Hi Everyone, and especially the girls on Team Charlotte-Chicago,

As most of you know, I'm not really fond of soliciting money from people, even when I deeply believe in the cause. But, in the case of Children's Memorial Hospital and its Cardiac Services team, I must make an exception.

I'd like to tell you about an event that I hope you'll consider attending with me:

50th Annual Gold Coast Fashion Award Show

The Children's Service Board of Children's Memorial Hospital invites you to celebrate 50 years of fashion and philanthropy at the 50th Annual Gold Coast Fashion Award Show, the little black dress.

This fun and fashionable event will benefit Pediatric Cardiac Services at Children's Memorial, ensuring that the hospital can continue to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art cardiac care to children in need.

Super and Regular raffle packages worth up to $10,000 will be raffled off!

The event will be held on Thursday, October 6 at the Chicago Hilton and Towers (720 S. Michigan Ave) in the International Ballroom. Valet parking will be available onsite. The Hilton is also easily reached by El and is not too far from either Metra station.

Schedule of events
11 a.m. — Cocktails

Please don't make a special trip to Chicago for this event. But, if you happen to already be here, or you live here, let's make an afternoon of it! Let me know if you'll be joining me by clicking on the comment link below.

And, as always, feel free to share this invitation and Charlotte's Journey Home with whomever you feel would be interested.

Ilene,
I went years ago when my dear late friend, Gloria Myers was a co-chair. It is a lovely afternoon foe a meaningful prupose. I have it on my calendar.
