June 7th at the Ivy Room: Shining a Light on Bipolar Disorder June 3, 2012 Sarah Levy, owner of Sarah’s Pastries & Candies here! One of the few things I love more than a good pastry is a good party. And that’s exactly what we’ll be having on Thursday, June 7 at A Night of Summer Light, the first-ever event hosted by the Young Friends of The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation. For one night, the Ivy Room, easily one of Chicago’s most gorgeous historic spaces, will be transformed into River North’s hottest party spot. We’ll have delicious bites from Entertaining Company (their short rib potstickers alone are worth the ticket price!), plenty of cocktails and, the essential ingredient to any great event, fantastic music from Toast & Jam DJs. One of my favorite things about the night (other than the dessert table from yours truly)? Uber, the on-demand car service, is providing free rides to and from the event! At the end of the night, your feet will probably ache from dancing, but at least you won’t have to walk home. While the night will be all about fun, the real reason behind it is a cause very dear to me and my family, that is, pediatric and adolescent bipolar disorder. It is estimated that more than a million children and teens are affected by early-onset bipolar disorder but, like many mental illnesses, there is still a stigma surrounding it. A Night of Summer Light will not only shed light on bipolar disorder for all who attend but it will also fund an educational program that will teach Chicago high school students, teachers and parents about the illness and its symptoms, prevalence and treatment options. I hope you’ll join me at this fantastic event. Buy your ticket today and you’ll get more than just a fun-filled night – you’ll also help the millions affected by bipolar disorder see a brighter day! –Sarah Levy 3 Responses aChicagoThing June 4, 2012 Read the latest on our blog from guest blogger Sarah Levy of @SarahsCandies about A Night of Summer Light @TheIvyRoom: http://t.co/8nF9NKnF Reply wendypashman June 5, 2012 June 7th at the Ivy Room: Shining a Light on Bipolar Disorder http://t.co/tIlEbPwl Reply KateASmith June 8, 2012 Had the BEST sweets last night made by @SarahsCandies at a Night of Summer Light Bipolar Disorder foundation fundraiser http://t.co/47IueLxI Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
