What happens when you bring together some of the city’s most fabulous philanthropists for a night of food, fun and fireworks? One of the hottest events of the summer: Shedd BLU.
Hosted by the Shedd’s Auxiliary Board, this annual fundraising soiree will be held on July 25 and is the perfect opportunity to party hard and celebrate summer (what little we’ve had of it), all in the name of charity.
Aptly named “Frog Wild”, this year’s event will feature the new Amphibians exhibit. Guests will indulge in food and drink offerings from more than 30 of the city’s top-tier restaurants and vendors (think Honey Butter Fried Chicken, Sunda, Jellyfish, and More cupcakes). It all culminates with a fireworks show along the lakefront, utilizing our spectacular skyline as the backdrop.
Ready to grab those tickets? Visit www.sheddaquarium.org/BLU to get the party started. And if you experience a little sticker shock, this next tidbit of info is just for you.
As one of the media partners for Shedd BLU, we are excited to announce that ChiTown Fashionista will be giving away not one, but TWO pairs of VIP tickets (a $500 value) to the event! That’s right. Lilly Pad Lounge access, VIP seating at the aquatic show, exclusive Shedd experiences and express check-in, all for $FREE.99.
To enter, post a photo to your social media platform of choice (Twitter, Instagram or Facebook), showing what you’d wear to BLU. Be sure to include the hashtag #StyleBLU to be considered for the drawing.
So pull out that new outfit, handbag and/or pair of shoes you’ve been dying to wear, and get to snapping! May the best (wo)man win.
Giveaway closes on Tuesday, July 21 at 11:59PM CST. Winners will be randomly selected the next morning.
