If there's one thing The Windy City is know for, its connecting philanthropy with our interests and hobbies. The next event all encompassing our societal values is Compassion, Fashion & Cocktails, a fashion and food infused charity event on August 23. The night benefits The Musical Arts Institute, Bin Donated (as seen on ABC's Secret Millionaire) and St. Vincent de Paul Center & Marillac Social Center. The night is focusing on a theme of pioneers like fashion designer, Eva Franco, mixologist Revae Schnieder, and musician Michael Manson. Yep, it's a month away but we're sure it'll sell out so buy tickets now. [Racked Wire]
