On November 12, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society Greater Illinois Chapter regales with a reason for the eighth annual MS2 Soirée 2011. Revelers juggle unlimited drinks—including one specialty drink created just for the event—from the open bar and hors d’oeuvres while their feet tap and twist to live tunes by Déjà Vu. A free casino night, silent auction, and raffle for a six-night stay at a Hawaiian condo each support the National MS Society’s research, programs, and advocacy for getting the letters M and S moved up in the alphabet.
The evening’s venue, theWit, opens Cibo Matto and Phoenix Lounge on the 2nd floor for the VIP reception at 6:30 p.m., with the infectious altruism drifting down to the third floor for the main event. VIPs and general-admission ticket holders then party purposefully until midnight. Semiformal attire is requested.
Multiple Solutions, the Greater Illinois Chapter's Junior Board
A debilitating illness that affects more than 400,000 people across the country, multiple sclerosis is a formidable opponent for even the strongest people. Fortunately, the do-gooders behind the National Multiple Sclerosis Society pair their fighting spirit and dedication to scientific breakthroughs with something even more powerful: bushels and bushels of cash. In every state, its members volunteer their time to advocate, educate, and raise money to find a cure. One of the larger chapters is the Greater Illinois Chapter, which spans 73 Illinois counties. The chapter’s signature event is the annual MS Soirée, a cocktail party and casino night featuring glittering gowns and enticing live music. While the event’s venue changes from time to time, past bashes have taken place at plush downtown hotels such as theWit, Swissôtel, and the Hard Rock Hotel.
