The UCCRF (University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation) is hosting its annual No Tie Ball on October 17th at the James Hotel, and you’re invited! Throw on mama’s pearls, showcase those dapper suspenders, and don your shiniest ballroom slippers, but leave those neckties at home, ladies and gentlemen, because while the event is for a serious cause, the UCCRF is looking to host a night of fun and relaxation. (In other words, this is not not your average stiff-collared fete.) The benefit for cancer research includes hors d’oeuvres from award winning David Burke’s Primehouse, top shelf open bar, and music from local sensation DJ Rock City. The silent auction and raffle prizes will include spa packages and dining certificates to some of the best venues in the city, and rumor has it a celebrity-meeting prize will be awarded during the night! Proceeds support ongoing cancer research and tickets can be purchased in advance or at the door.
October 17th 9 p.m. – 12 a.m.
