Summer is officially here - so Jetta Bates-Vasilatos decided to use her social collateral to throw quite an interesting soirée. "There is an art to embracing the luxuriousness of this much anticipated season". Inspired by the insider tips provided by Bates-Vasilatos in her article in June's Essence Magazine - this exclusive event will allow guests a "Jettasetting" (the title of her segment on radio station WVON) Chicago immersion and provide some chic suggestions for fun just in time for summer!
The event includes:
Summertime bites from Chef Iccha, The Reluctant Vegetarian, and learn how to create the ultimate picnic basket
Foodie fun for carnivores provided by Chef Aleta Williams of Loquacious Catering
Sip on custom cocktails created by HUM, the spirit of choice for Oprah's wrap party (also summer tastings for the grape and hop lovers).
Luxuriate in an international, award-winning, sustainable environment
Learn how to channel your inner super model with celebrity photographer Ven Sherrod's summertime posing demonstration
Global beats designed by DJ Eddie Mills and DJ O
Parking is available
A portion of event proceeds will go to the Chicago Sinfonietta - the nation's most diverse orchestra.
