The inaugural event for "Aviators' Night Out for Sight" was recently held at the Chicago Executive Airport amidst a backdrop of Marquis Jets, including a G-4 and Citation, along with exotic sportscars from Lake Forest Sportscars. It was quite a dramatic venue for this first-time event which attracted over 200 chic guests and raised $25,000 and counting for Midwest Eye-Bank. Event co-chairs, Franco LaMarca and Anthony Contrucci, also featured a fashion show presented by designers Mark Roscoe, Anastacia Chatzka, Horacio Nieto, Sittar by Gibeon Tolbert and Akira Men. The gaming tables and delicious food stations from various restaurants including my favorite, RL, were filled with happy guests.
Midwest Eye-Bank is an organization dedicated to to the restoration of sight.
