Fashionable FUNd Raising at Charity Events in Downtown Chicago



When the weather cools down, there’s nothing quite like a night out in the city. It’s the perfect excuse (not that you need one!) to get all dolled up and wear a gorgeous fur coat. We’ve compiled a list of upcoming events (each fabulous and philanthropic!) in the downtown Chicago area; plus, we paired a few of our favorite glam fur and fine outerwear looks to match!

Oct 18: Nothing like a little Southern food to warm you up on a chilly Fall night. The Swedish Covenant Hospital Foundation will host its annual benefit at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in downtown Chicago. This year’s theme – On the Bayou!

Oct. 25: Looking to show a little patriotic spirit? The USO of Illinois hosts its Star-Spangled Salute Gala in the Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier. Chicago Bears cornerback and 2013 NFL Man of the Year, Charles “Peanut” Tillman, will receive the USO Angel Harvey Heart of a Patriot Award.
