I was so thrilled to be a part of Michigan Avenue Magazine's GRAND party at Horseshoe Casino to celebrate December covergirl and now Chicago's OWN (pun intended!), Rosie O'Donnell! Held in the elegant Seven Stars Lounge, this party attracted movers, shakers and just plain cool! There was fabulous food (including delicious cupcakes from Crumbs Bake Shop!), cocktails, a DJ and more. Guests were also encouraged to bring a toy or book to donate to LYDIA'S Home for children in crisis.
I've seen a lot of celebs work a Red Carpet but none as generous with their time as Rosie was on this night. Information to the media stated that Rosie would be seated, along with her staff, in a special VIP area after the Red Carpet and no one would be allowed to bother her then. Well, kudos to Rosie! She never once entered this area and preferred, instead, to mix and mingle with her many fans and friends. I am so thrilled to have her here! Thanks to Mich Mag's Editor-in-Chief, Susanna Negovan and publisher Dan Uslan! It was a night I'll never forget! :-) (Fab foto by Mila Samokhina).
