Pour Your Heart Out

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 Perry

What could make an evening of delicious food, custom cocktails, and delightful company that much sweeter?  When it is all for a good cause.  Planning events with soul is the expertise of Stephanie Schertz and Jess Syburg, founders of the wedding and event coordinating company, The Eventful Life, so it’s no surprise that their partnership with Lydia Home for their latest fundraising event was nothing short of amazing.

 Nellcote, at 833 W. Randolph St., provided the romantic ambiance for the evening’s event on Thursday, April 10th.  Rows of crystal chandeliers adorned the ceiling, illuminating the golden wallpaper that decked the room.

With more than 400,000 children currently in the foster care system, hope can be hard to find.  Lydia Home Association is a Christ-honoring organization whose mission is to strengthen families to care for children, and care for children when families cannot.

As the Vice Presidents of Events on the Lydia Home auxiliary board, Schertz and Syburg use their powers for good.  More than 80 tickets were sold for the Pour Your Heart Out event.   Lydia Co-President, Erica Dorantes said she enjoyed the evening and hopes that all of the other guests did as well.   Nellcote was a great venue, perfect for this event,” said Dorantes.  “The drinks were amazing, thanks to Gallo and Half Acre who also donated.”

Lydia supporters and Chicago socialites alike mingled and connected throughout the evening.  Another beautiful success by The Eventful Life team and one big step for Chicago’s children.
