It was another banner year for one of Chicago’s favorite fundraising events for the see and be scene crowd, the 26th annual Chicago Gateway Green’s Green Tie Ball. This year’s event was boosted with some fire star power special guests including hottie “Chicago Fire” actor Taylor Kinney, super producer DJ White Shadow (Paul Blair), surprise performance by Miranda Rae Mayo, cast members from “Chicago Fire” “Chicago PD” as well as Twista and many more.
This year’s Green Tie Ball, which raised $300,000 this year, was co-chaired by Jacky Ferro, wife of Merrick Ventures and tronc non-executive chairman Michael Ferro and Beth Goldberg Heller Founder of Beth Heller Consulting and former VP of marketing for Harry Caray’s Restaurant Group.
Though the UIC parking lot location they used a few years back is dearly missed, guests made their way up north to Architectural Artifacts for the night themed “Devil In The Green City.” Last year and the inaugural Green tie ball co-chairs Neal Zucker and Lara Ship Shiffman were in attendance alongside other #GTB host committee members including Tony Abruscato, Grant DePorter, Susanna Woman, Colette Cachey Smithburg, Sarah Wood, Lee Golub who took the stage with his band, to name a few.
Both Kinney and Blair were looking fresh in Kercher suits by designer Josh Kercher.
Can we talk about Taylor Kinney’s hottie MILF mom?! She was definitely scene making.
