Thanks for an Uplifting Night Out! #CheckYourGirls

Last Friday, September 30th, our readers joined us to “Support Your Girls” and kick-off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a healthy dose of panache. Mamas across Lake County took the night off for a night out with Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.  Through their generosity, we were able to donate $500 to the American Cancer Society!

Pampering, pleasure, prizes and the paparazzi were out in full force! JD Event Photography set the tone for fun and frivolity with their “photo booth” filled with hilarious props.  It’s perfect to book for special occasions, birthday parties, even dance recitals. Visit our Facebook album for more photo booth madness!
