Northwestern University Manager's Ball

We had the pleasure of putting together a 1920s themed party for the 2015 graduates of Northwestern University Kellogg School's MBA program. It was an absolutely beautiful evening held at Union Station, with gorgeous decor provided by Event Creative. The event included both a Silent and Live auction, benefitting the programs' philanthropic endeavor with the Big Shoulders Fund. Have a look through the photos by Ingrid Bonne Photography! 

American Cancer Society's 2015 Black & White Ball

We had the great pleasure of being asked back to coordinate another ACS Black & White Ball, which raised nearly $300,000 for cancer research in 2015. With the help of vendors like Meetinghouse, the Flat Cats, Galaxie Girls, and Ingrid Bonne Photography, AELO had a blast making this event extraordinary!

Dr. Lauren Streicher's Book Launch Events

Dr. Lauren Streicher is a well-respected gynecologist who has been featured on Dr. Oz, the Today Show, Windy City Live and countless other outlets as she is considered a leading expert in her field. In 2014 she wrote a book called Love Sex Again, and our team was thrilled to coordinate two events for her – an afternoon luncheon at Northwestern University Hospital, where 350 women could browse local vendors' wares and have their books signed by Dr. Streicher after she delivered a hilarious lecture on health and sexuality. That evening, the Paris Club hosted a cocktail party where local media, medical professionals, and family & friends honored Lauren’s achievement. We had a great time managing both events, putting together 700+ gift bags and handling all of the details. Thanks to Elena Bazini Photography for the gorgeous shots!

American Cancer Society's 2014 Black & White Ball

The American Cancer Society's yearly fundraiser, the Black and White Ball, features music and dancing, live and silent auctions, and opportunities for over 500 guests to contribute to the fight against cancer. AELO has been honored to offer our time and coordination services as a donation to the cause. Ingrid Bonne also donated her photography services. Take a look!
