Anti-Cruelty Society Benefit at Palmer House Hilton
It’s Raining Cats & Dogs! is Chicago’s Anti-Cruelty Society’s big fall benefit at the Palmer House Hilton. Stefan Holt from NBC5 is this year's MC and this is one of the cities premier must-go-to events. Last years’ benefit raised more than $200,000 which went directly to our city’s cuddly critters in need.
I hope you will purchase a ticket for this awesome October 26th Friday Night Event because you won’t ever have a chance like this again to sample the best food from this mix of the best celebrity chefs from the best restaurants in Chicago. And you get to be wined and dined for such a great cause!
