“Going to school is like walking through a magic door to your dreams.”  Malala Yousafzai

As you may know, education for young girls in some countries is a considered a luxury, even an out-of-reach pipe dream, that is often withheld to keep women down.  Malala Yousafzai‘s Nobel Peace Prize last week is a testament of hope to constant battle that girls around the world face.

I recently quit my career in advertising to pursue my own dreams in event design and management, and take some time to give back to the community in ways that I wasn’t able to before because of time constraints.  I found a locally- founded organization, Commit2Change, to team up with.

Our organization’s mission is to provide secondary education and housing for orphaned and abandoned girls in India.   Commit2Change works with a number of centers in India to give our girls that same hope so that they can dream of a better future.

Here is a link to our website to learn more about Commit2Change, see our girls and the impact our supporters have on their lives.

This Friday, October 17 is our Fourth Annual Fundraising Gala.  This year’s event is a Costume Ball at Morgan Street Studios in Fulton Market (456 N Morgan).  The event runs from 7:30pm – 11:30pm.

Delicious food and tempting signature cocktails are sure to delight – we’ll have food catered by Food First and a designer dessert table by Frost Cake Designs.  We will also have pop-ups food stands by Taco Joint, Glazed and Infused, and Pranzi.

We’ll have DJ Rob Nice, DJ for the Chicago Bulls, spinning all night, and I guarantee that Halloween favorites like Thriller and the Monster Mash are on the must-play list.

Of course, no costume party is not complete without a photo booth to capture ghoulish and gorgeous costumes, so be sure to get fancy.
