The idea of “Make My Day Mondays” or “MMDM” is every Monday to make an effort to help someone in need. The distinction of “MMDM” is not to focus on a dollar amount or a specific organization, but to behave with a sense of strong morality and support for the community.

The heart of the idea is to donate anything to anyone or anyplace that is important to the individual. Whether it’s buying a homeless person a meal or volunteering at a local school, we hope the pay-it-forward idea becomes contagious.  By ‘tagging’ social media posts about your good deed with #MMDM, others in your network and beyond will be encouraged to look for ways to help others!

The new Chicago hotspot Hubbard Inn will host our 4th “Make My Day Monday” event. This month we are benefiting Team Hope’s Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Like past MMDM events, donations will be taken at the door with 100% given directly to Team Hope.

The private party will be located upstairs at Hubbard Inn (110 W Hubbard, Chicago) starting at 6pm TONIGHT (2/28).

Hubbard Inn will be passing around samples of their delicious flat-bread pizzas and a cocktail reception featuring the “Hubbard Smash,” made with Maker’s Mark, until 7pm.

Chris Rongey, host of the Pregame and Postgame shows for the White Sox on 670 AM, The Score, will be there supporting the cause.

Bring your friends to come together for some cocktails to support a great cause and meet some new amazing people!

Well-dressed Spies and the Women That Love Them

Feb 24, 2011   //   by Cameron   //   Clients, Events, Fashion, News  //  No Comments

I can’t remember the last time I was in a fashion show, and there is probably a good reason for this, but I’m giving it another try this Saturday. Well maybe they just felt like they had to invite me since I made their new website look so awesome? Every fashion show needs a computer geek, right?!

Check out the invite and come be entertained:

Spring Fashion Show for Sebastien Grey

Sebastien Grey embarks on its first Fashion Show with a bang of the British spy variety for a Pre-Spring Show at The Underground on February 26th.

Join MC Kelli Zink watching debonair super spies (and the provocatively dressed ladies who love them) walk down the runway in the bespoke fashion causing a buzz all over the Windy City. You’ll be shaken and stirred by Halo [For Men]’s sleek grooming and Sebastien Grey’s custom shirts, slacks, vests, three-piece suits, overcoats and more.

Don’t miss a glimpse of luxurious, bespoke English tailoring with a hip, modern edge while you sip martinis and move to beats by The Underground’s resident DJ. Doors open at 9:00pm, RSVP to

Alumni for Public Schools promotes and supports volunteer partnerships between the Chicago chapters of college and university alumni associations and individual Chicago public schools in order to enhance student learning and increase students’ awareness of and readiness for post-secondary options.

APS provides a link and a means of communication between three primary stakeholders: the Chicago Public Schools central office, participating schools, and volunteers from participating alumni associations. We seek to encourage public schools to view alumni associations as valuable resources for their students, and to encourage alumni clubs to imagine new and effective possibilities for their partnerships.

Come interact with the kids!!!
