Chicago had tons of New Year’s Eve parties Monday night and a lot were great, but none were quite like Entrepreneurs Eve. Held at the Adler Planetarium the party was literally an event under the stars. Chicago’s business professionals came out in their finest duds and celebrated the entrepreneurial spirit while also helping raise money for the H Foundation. In partnership with the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, the H Foundation raises money to help find a cure for cancer.
Cor Strategies welcomed attendees to the Adler at 8, and in total over 650 were in attendance. With a full open bar, champagne for fuel and amazing music, partygoers danced under the magnificent glass ceiling of the Adler with a view of Chicago’s incredible skyline. The music was great thanks to the DJ’s, including DJ DOLO, DJ Will Galvan, DJ Matt Roan, DJ Yours Truly and I can’t forget the headliner DJ Zeke Thomas who was the maestro behind the boards at midnight. All attendees had access to the museum’s exhibits, the cigar lounge and casino (you didn’t think the money got raised the boring way did you?).
While all of that seemed like a perfect New Years, VIP guests were treated to even more. VIP guests were treated to Hennessy Black cocktails expertly crafted by Chicago’s own Benjamin Newby. When they were ready to strut their stuff on the dance floor, they did it in one of the Adlers full sized theaters turned private club. Honestly, no matter which experience you got, it was absolutely incredible. Entrepreneurs Eve was the party you talk about to make all your friends who didn’t go jealous. To top it all off, they raised over $69,000 dollars for the H Foundation. Hats off to #EE12 and here’s to patiently waiting for #EE13.
