Beside owning the hottest restaurants and club in the city, CHI-lebrity Billy Dec is a social media genius to say the least. Now, Mr. Dec is using his online powerhouse presence for an amazing cause.
To celebrate 2 years of writing his popular Chicago entertainment, arts & culture blog aChicagoThing.com along with a rapidly growing number of friends & followers on Facebook & Twitter (about 20,000 combined!), Billy is throwing a huge bash at Rockit Bar & Grill (22 W. Hubbard) on Thursday February 3rd from 7-9PM .
Not only will this be a party not to miss, but all proceeds from the night will go to The Greater Chicago Food Depository. Tickets can be purchased here and your donation will score you food from Sunda and Rockit along with signature drinks from The Underground & Grey Goose!
"During the last couple years of our brutal recession, a 36% increase of an additional 178,000 people have gone hungry and needed food desperately from The Greater Chicago Food Depository alone," reveals Dec. "In my yearly effort to support them, post holidays when donations are at their lowest, I'm excited to bring my new social network together to make a bigger impact."
Did I forget to mention how creative, witty, and fantastic the video invite is? Billy's online avatar coming to life just proves his social savvy. Check it out on Youtube now!
