From 8-11 tonight, Alessi in the Tree Studios will be hosting the industrial design students of UIC as they show their work along side Alessi designs on showroom shelves. A $5 donation at the door will grant you drinks, a 10% discount on all purchases of the night, and a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of four of Alessi's most popular products. Additionally, sales of any raffle tickets purchased at the event will benefit UIC's industrial architecture program and any purchase over $1,000 will receive 20% discount off of their entire purchase.
