Thank You Chicago!

big-night-2013-1Hundreds of animal-loving Chicagoans made their way up the grand staircase to Preston Bradley Hall in the Cultural Center for the 8th annual “Big Night” charity extravaganza on Wednesday night, September 19. The event was emceed by Jim and Lakesha Rose, catered by a dozen of Chicago’s finest chefs, and featured a mini concert by Jesse Campbell, star of The Voice. This year, nearly 50 original artworks were offered to bid on and so was a live auction of a dinner cooked in your home for 8 people by the famous Jackie Shen. (Chef Shen originated the event to honor her dog Luke, adopted from Chicago Animal Care and Control.)
