EVENT: #PINKandGREEN Pre-Spring Fling on March 14 @UndergroundChi

Do you want to raise some money for a great cause? Don your finest pink and green this March 14 at The Underground Chicago in support of A Silver Lining Foundation!

WHAT:   1st Annual Pink and Green Pre-Spring Fling

WHEN: Saturday, March 14, 2014 from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM

WHERE: The Underground Chicago, 56 West Illinois, Chicago

The foundation was founded in 2002 by Dr. Sandy Goldberg, and its vision is to ensure that socioeconomic status does not affect an individual’s ability to obtain information, timely cancer screening and diagnosis. The Pre-Spring Fling will support the foundation’s free mammography program.

Pink and Green

Why pink and green? Pink represents breast cancer, and it wouldn’t be Chicago if we weren’t celebrating St. Patrick’s Day that week! Spring officially starts on March 21, so the co-host, NBC 5 meteorologist Alicia Roman is predicting extremely mild temperatures for that night.

Ticket includes two hours of complimentary cocktails (limit  of 5 cocktails per person) and a silent auction, but make no mistake, this is a party! Internationally-renowned DJ Madrid brings his global grooves to the 1s and 2s, along with the ’90s hip-hop stylings of DJ Ryan Ross.

Gather your friends and grab a table, it’s a better deal and they’ll go fast. See you March 14!

The mission of A Silver Lining Foundation is to ensure dignified, respectful and equal access to quality cancer education and services for all, by creating meaningful partnerships with community, advocacy and healthcare organizations.

Of those women receiving services, 99% are uninsured.

Petergof Nightclub’s Alien Invasion 2013 #Event #Venue #Holiday

The Friday after Halloween may seem like a hard night to get folks to dress up, but not if you are Petergof Nightclub in Northbrook, IL.  Connected through my friends at Paradigm Next (thanks Yana and Alex), Alien Invasion 2013 was to be my first time visiting this venue.

petergof alien invasion 2013

Petergof is a restaurant, a banquet hall, an event space and a nightclub all rolled into one great space with a big, free parking lot.  Cocktails were moderately priced at $7-$9.  The space is beautiful, well-maintained and the staff was friendly (which is HUGE for me).

Check out the attached video to see all the fun including a costume contest, gregarious DJs, girls dancing in bikinis, the mesmerizing saxophone player and more information about Petergof in general.

You can also keep up with Petergof Nightclub on Facebook for the latest event information and lots of pictures from the event.
