Guests sipped their way around the world Nov. 2 at Chicago Commons’ annual Pour Out Your Heart for Commons fundraiser. More than 300 attendees at the East Bank Club (500 N. Kingsbury) joined co-chair Daniel Brosk in toasting to the 119-year-old nonprofit with wine samplings from five different stations — Tiny Bubbles, Pure Italian, Views of Burgundy, Bordeaux-Inspired and Big Reds — curated by Southern Wine and Spirits of Illinois’ William Gibson. Later, guests bid on silent auction items and continued the party at Municipal Bar + Dining Co. (216 W. Ohio). More than $100,000 was raised to support Commons’ work in child development, youth services, adult education and care for seniors and adults with disabilities.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
