As a women’s professional networking organization and a certified B Corporation, Blazin’ Babes hosted a Masquerade Charity Ball on Saturday, February 25, 2017 at Land Rover Northfield entitled, “Luck Be A Lady” in honor of One Refugee Child, a non-profit launched by 5 women who utilized the power of social networking because they saw the horrors of what was happening to refugee children overseas and wanted to help. They pooled their resources and their skill sets to form a non-profit in order to help refugee children in need.
At the event, guests enjoyed lively casino games, dancing to the tunes of Famos DJ Entertainment, silent auction items donated from over 100 donors and catered stations from Chicago’s top restaurants including The Happ Inn, Pinstripes, Stacked & Folded, Jameson’s Charhouse, The Hearty Boys, Backyard Grill and Sprinkles Cupcakes. From the planning and execution of the event, Blazin’ Babes raised a total of $9,010 which was donated to One Refugee Child and will be utilized to build a playground for refugee children overseas. The playground will be built by Catalytic Action, a non-profit design company based out of London that builds playgrounds for refugee children living in refugee camps. To see the play-by-play design and construction of this playground project, sign up for the Blazin’ Babes’ newsletter and “Like” both the Blazin Babes Facebook page in addition to One Refugee Child. Updates of the playground project will be posted regularly.
