On Nov. 29, the Woman’s Board of the Chicago Horticultural Society hosted about 400 guests for All Aboard, a Russian-themed fundraiser. Guests sampled vodka and caviar during a cocktail reception, and later enjoyed dinner in one of three rooms that were replicas of Russian imperial palaces. Lively entertainment was provided by Russian singing ensemble Golosa. Co-chaired by Gail Miller and Alicia Crawford, the party raised $300,000 to support community gardening programs.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
