Recently, rolling out had the privilege of attending an event held by Friends in the City Foundation in Chicago, Illinois. The event served as part fundraiser and part wine tasting and attracted the beautiful people of Chicago.

The goal of Friends in the City is providing college scholarships and assistance to individuals with financial needs. They also partner and support schools by providing them with services such as multi-tiered support services for academically challenged students at the elementary and middle school levels and a 10-week  “Beauty Book Camp,” helping young girls in middle and high school build self-esteem.

On Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015, FITCF will host the first Dream Gala with keynote speaker author Erika McCall. All proceeds from the gala will fund the 2016 scholarships and programs.

It was a great night for fundraising and wine tasting. Everyone had so much fun. Take a look at the pics in the gallery and see for yourself.
