Winter has finally arrived in Chicago. It's snowy, slush and cold...but you still want to go out!

So hit up the Blackboard Affair tonight! Tickets are still available and it benefits a great cause.

It's the annual fundraising event for the Associates Board of Working in the Schools (WITS). Proceeds from the Blackboard Affair support WITS’ Saturday Tutoring program. Saturday Tutoring is a bi-monthly program located in three Chicago Public Schools structured around one-on-one tutoring for elementary-aged students, with the goal of giving children safe, academically supportive weekend activities.

The cocktail party featuring a masquerade ball Mardi Gras theme will be hosted by Bears' Kicker Robbie Gould and Radio and Television Personality, Nina Chantele (103.5 KissFM, WGCI and Windy City Live).

Tickets are just $85 (online registration is about to close!) and will include a premium open bar, heavy hors d’oeuvres, live DJ, amazing raffle packages, dancing and access to the after party at Studio Paris.

VIP tickets are also available and include a reception from 6 to 7 pm.
