Stop Look Listen - "Suit Up" For Charity

Stop Look Listen - "Suit Up" For Charity


I’m getting “suited up” and it’s for a good cause…Usually I dread a suit in the, stuffy, never quite comfortable.  But this Wednesday I’m looking forward to  donning my best “whatever is available in the closet” for the aptly named “Suit Up”   Bull and Bear (431 North Wells). While suits aren’t required, your networking will need to be as sharp as a new Armani. Industry leaders will serve as event spheres and bring in new potential guest hosts and match them with other companies.

Maven, the connections agency behind many Chicago networking events has teamed up with River North hotspot Bull & Bear to present SUIT UP. This monthly business networking event features industry leaders in finance, real estate, law, marketing, entertainment and more. Maven is headed by Sarah Vargo, the Driving Force behind the Divo and Diva Series as well as marketing and media expert on many Chicago events.

Admission to “Suit Up”  is $5 per person and 100% of the proceeds will go to  two charities The Illinois Patriot Education Fund and Operation Homefront.

The Illinois Patriot Educations Fund‘s mission is to raise scholarship funds on behalf of spouses and children of Illinois military service men and women who have given their lives or have become disabled while serving our country. We also further the educational dreams of those men and women currently serving in the Armed Forces by providing financial assistance beyond what is offered by the Post-9-11 GI Bill.

Operation Homefront provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Through generous, widespread public support and a collaborative team of exceptional staff and volunteers, we aspire to become the provider of choice for emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Where there is a need we do not provide, we will partner with others for the benefit of our military families.

I am proud to be a sponsor of the event,my co sponsors for the event include: Brian Tomkins – CEO of Focused Online Marketing, Clare Hefferren – President and Founder of Callosum Creative, Kevin Hicks – Senior Talent Director – Kforce Professional Staffing,Mark Biery – Founder at LTS Chicago, Nikki Valentine – LTS Chicago, Patrick Meyn – Partner/Director of Business Development for SilvrSpoon, PJ McGuire – Founder of Modet, Inc. , Sue Tao – Prudential Rubloff, Tariq “TK” Khwaja – Branch Owner at American Nationwide Mortgage Corp, Terri Lee Ryan-Human Capital Solutions, Inc and Tim Brigham – American Nationwide Mortgage Corp

If you have questions  or to RSVP please contact

So whether you’re “suited up”  or not..your presence will show you’re “well suited” to  support two very important organizations.
