The annual Joffrey Ballet "Couture & Cocktails", will be held at The Hudson located at 2222 S. Michigan Ave., Chicago. Co-chaired this year by Kristina McGrath and Rebecca Besser, this glamorous fall event will feature internationally known fashion designer David Meister and a dramatic full-runway fashion show co-presented by Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue. Along with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, guests will enjoy a silent and live auction and, of course, dancing with Joffrey company members. The event will launch The Joffrey Ballet’s 2011-12 season. Tickets for the evening are priced at $1,000 for Model Chic tickets, $500 for All-Star tickets and $275 Patron tickets. The Model Chic and All-Star tickets will include fabulous extras at the event, including the exclusive VIP cocktail party.
