Chicago philanthropist and man-about-town Marco Foster hosted his Third Annual White Party recently at American Junkie (15 W. Illinois). The evening, which benefitted One Hope United, a not-for-profit organization that protects vulnerable children from child abuse or neglect and prepares them for a brighter future, was Marco's biggest party to date and one of the hottest parties of the summer. “There was a time in my life when I was young and lost in the system, also known as the Department of Children and Family Services. I was adopted by a great woman, Marjorie Foster, at the age of seven, and I'm able to relate to what a foster child and parent has to deal with,” said Foster. “The White Party gives me a platform to raise awareness for and give back to One Hope United, an absolutely wonderful organization with the goal of finding a safe home for every child."
Featuring two hours of specialty cocktails by Burrell Vodka and beats from DJ Dante the Don beneath a retractable roof, guests painted the town white (not red!) for this yearly anticipated soiree which also celebrated Marco's birthday. He arrived in style in a Cadillac XTS4 Platinum Edition that was donated by Cadillac (of course!), and who also offered another lucky guest the opportunity to drive one for a week.
Congrats to Marco for the wonderful work he does on behalf of One Hope United! See you next year!
