Cocktails in the Coast

Friends and neighbors gathered recently on a chilly spring evening on E. Bellevue Pl. for a significant annual fundraiser: "Cocktails in the Coast" featured gourmet food, superior drinks, and refreshing music accompanied by dancing. This traditional fundraiser was started by GCN (Gold Coast Neighbors), an organization whose purpose is to beautify and improve the community's surroundings throughout the year. This organization is probably best known for coordinating the Astor street party or creating "Ghouly Park", which transforms Goudy Park into a spooky, Halloween outdoor wonderland loved by children for miles around ....

Other things benefitted by this proud, springtime fundraiser include the Near North Preservation Coalition, keeping the terrific lake views of the areas high rises intact, and general maintenance and upkeep of Gold Coast parkways and walkways. With outstanding support like this, the neighborhood should be shining like bars of gold for years to come ....
