PARTY: G&F’s Second Annual #GFBFF Dinner
VENUE: Ava Room, Public Hotel Chicago
DATE: Thursday, August 21st
THE LURE: We hosted our second annual Glossed & Found BFF Dinner to celebrate our biggest supporters, advertisers and contributors that make G&F so special and so darn fun! Each year, we invite a new group of fashionable followers to say thanks for a year of their talents. Following our #GFxTOPSHOP event, we invited guests upstairs to the stunning Ava Room on17th floor of the Public Hotel. With rain in the forecast, we transformed the space into a tropical oasis. Guests were greeted with a Steel Drum band organized by Gold Coast All Stars and tropical-inspired florals by Christine Noelle of Dilly Lilly. Leis adorned the chairs along with unique portraiture placecards of each of our guests created by Doodlebooth—wearing Hawaiian inspired style! We quickly forgot about the rainy evening after a heartfelt Moet toast by G&F Creative Director D. Graham Kostic who honored everyone in the room—from Broadway baby Jaslene Gonzalez who starred in our #GFMusical shoot to Chelsea Lavin who launched G&F’s The Find. It was truly a beautiful gathering of beautiful people who we can never seem to thank enough for being our team of G&F cheerleaders. >>
