Snowball 2017

Snow Ball 2017 Chicago Black TieLast Saturday night I attended the Junior Council’s 29th Snowball, an annual ball held every winter in support of #FortheKids to raise money for the Pediatric and Adolescent HIV and AIDS programs of The Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

This year the event was held at the Field Museum with over 2,300 attendees! It was massive!

Ali of Those White Walls, Olivia of Olivia Rink, and Lauren of Lakeshore Lady all joined me as well as my gorgeous sister for the evening.Snow Ball 2017 Chicago Black TieNow being style bloggers we couldn’t resist the opportunity to get REALLY dolled up for the event.
