Kids TLC – Benefit17

November 4th was the date for Kids TLC Benefit17. Sybil and Greg Orman served as chairmen for the event, which was held at the North Club at Arrowhead Stadium. There was a Patrons’ Party to kick off the fun, complete with cotton candy-topped champagne and hors d’oeuvres. Guests, including many in sequins and glitter, next explored a dazzling variety of activities: the antics of Quixotic Cirque Nouveau, cocktails and food stations, photo booths and interactive stations, a brief program, and live and silent auctions. The After Party featured DJ Ashton Martin and an irresistible LED dance floor.
