July Event – ARTRevolution

What were you doing 25 years ago? Perhaps you were part of the group that formed a new association, ISES.  The ISES-Chicago chapter took a moment out of their busy schedules back on July 17th to mark the 25th anniversary of the association. 

Guests were buzzing about ARTRevolution, our host venue, with its loft atmosphere, priceless downtown skyline view and free parking.  They were greeted with refreshments and passed appetizers from Jordan’s Food of Distinction.  Guests mingled, networked and some were even brave enough to get into The Traveling Photobooth prior to dinner.  Others posed for Deja Views to grab some snapshots.
Guests were then invited by our outgoing ISES-Chicago President, Sandy Sobczak, to be seated for dinner, and were not disappointed! The tablescape created by Chicago Farm Tables, Tablescapes and Exquisite Designs was a perfect companion to the brick loft of ARTRevolution.  Many guests were tweeting and talking about the fun summer palette.  Dinner started with a refreshing salad-cold soup combo, and that was definitely welcome on such a hot July day.  As our dinner progressed, we had more ISES announcements and the new 2012-13 Board of Directors were sworn in.  We welcomed Bob Moison – President, Barb Harris – President-Elect, Sue Babin – VP of Membership, Dave Calzaretta – VP of Communications, Nicole Zenner – VP of Programs/Education, Lanie Hartman, Suzanne Lockett, Darren Fox, Greg Werstler, Lauren Bettcher and Katie Knox.
The evening ended with a few brave souls dancing and singing to the amazing musical talent of Chicago Music Machine.  We all left the evening excited about the next 25 years of ISES!
