The Victorian Ball in the 21st Century is a most highly anticipated elegant soiree of the summer hosted at the Stan Mansion on Friday, June 15th. Benefitting the non-for-profit, Chicago Lost and Found, a community organization focused on art education, this event is designed to feature an exhibition of many of Chicago’s talented Visual and Performing Artists. Masquerade the night away while indulging in enchanting entertainment, music, elixirs, fashion, shopping, and more!
The evening will begin with an art exhibit featuring local artists and photographers. Guest will enjoy a wine bar and appetizers while viewing art and photography, and a fashion installation by a select 3 fashion designers, and a "pop-up boutique" with items for sale made by Chicago Lost and Found. HGTV/Chicago 3 Media personality Kevin Grace will be welcoming guests on the blue velvet carpet as they enter the mansion.
Once upstairs in the mansion, guests will enjoy an open bar, desserts, amazing music by celeberty DJ LEGO, and much entertainment including the Joffrey Ballet - Abigail Simon and Mauro Villanueva, an opera performance by Marisa Buchheit/ Miss Chicago! and Electric Violinist, Katarina Visnevska
