Last night's Kick-Off Party for the Joffrey's Couture & Cocktails at Neiman Marcus was a blow-out!  250+ people turned out to meet our star designer for the September event, Pamella DeVos, of Pamella Roland designs.  Her pieces were exquisite and had the many Joffrey Women's Board members in attendance oohing and aahing.  There was informal modeling of her gorgeous designs and she took photos with everyone.

Then Neiman Marcus' GM, Wendy Krimmins, spoke and told us how happy they are with our collaboration and Tina Koegel, PR Director, echoed her sentiments.   Helen Melchior and I then thanked our sponsors, introduced Pamella and spoke about creating this event 4 years ago.  Now it has become Couture & Cocktails on steroids thanks to the generous sponsorship and support from the Palmer House--where the main event will be held on Friday, Sept. 25th.  This event will be unlike anything Chicago has ever seen before!!  We have the most exciting auction items too so be sure to check out our website for these updates and ticket info.  www.Joffrey.org or call Julia at (312) 386-8921.
