OSCAR® NIGHT AMERICA AT GENE SISKEL FILM CENTER CHICAGO


Ray Samlow
of MJ Catering served as chair of the event, co-chars were David Hundley and Eliot Ephraim.  Committee members for Oscar Night America-Chicago were Kristin Anderson, Michelle Cucchiaro, Alexis Nido-Russo, Ellen Sandor and Chaga Walton. It was a really great party with a lot going on throughout the night. Amanda Puck  hosted the red carpet and Candace Jordan of Watch312.com interviewed guests. I had the chance to meet and chat with some really neat people.
