Fabulous fall fashion show funds Service Club's grant program

It was another exciting afternoon for the Service Club of Chicago’s annual “Day on the Terrace” fashion show and luncheon held, as always, at The Peninsula Chicago. Co-chaired by SC members Jean Antoniou, Yvette Cusack, Tracey DiBuono (who also produced the show through her ZZAZZ Productions) and Sharyl Mackey, the event raised a record-breaking $100,000!

I’ve always loved this event, not only for the first-look at fall fashions, but also because of the camaraderie this group has. As one of the city’s oldest non-profits (founded in 1890), the members have a long history of working together for a common goal, serving those less fortunate through its Philanthropic Grant program.

For this year’s event, themed “Rock the Runway,” a sell-out crowd of over 350 mixed and mingled on the terrace before enjoying a 45 minute fashion extravaganza featuring fall looks from local retailers that included alice+olivia, Anne Fontaine, Basler, CH-Carolina Herrera, Eileen Fisher, Escada, L.K. Bennett, Max Mara and Maximilian Furs at Bloomingdale’s and Tom James. The thrilling finale featured eveningwear from Neiman Marcus Michigan Avenue and models escorted by handsome members of the U.S. Marine Corps.

Congrats, as always, to this group whose tireless dedication to its cause is a wonderful sight to behold. (Check out my Chicago Tribune coverage here) (Teddie Kossof Salon Spa official hairdresser for Day on the Terrace 2017).
