| June 30, 2016 | Parties National

THE PARTY With heartwarming testimonies from Kesem campers decorating the walls, the evening was one to remember, featuring a cocktail reception, seated dinner and live auction (prizes included a private yacht party at the Chicago Air & Water Show), all in support of Camp Kesem’s summer programs for children affected by their parent’s cancer. THE PEOPLE Hosted by Good Day Chicago contributor Susanna Negovan, guests included Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson—who spontaneously took to the stage during the live auction and upped the ante on a Blackhawks package to include drinks with him and a friend for the lucky winner. The evening came to a close with dessert and dancing to Grammy-winning DJ Maurice Joshua. THE PINNACLE The Ball raised more than $1 million to bring the fun of summer camp to 6,000-plus children. Do you believe in magic? We sure do. –Photos by Sheri Whitko
