2011 Celestial Ball
The Occasion: The Women’s Board of the Adler Planetarium toasted their champagne to “Supernova,” the annual fund-raising benefit for the treasured Chicago attraction.
The Scene: A “Palace of Versailles on Mars” effect was the goal for décor of the evening—Bells of Ireland with hydrangeas, combined with platinum linens and unique lighting created a supernatural space within the Adler’s glass-enclosed Sky Pavilion.
The VIPs: Amanda Bonnell of Winnetka served as event chair, and Loli DiSanto of Winnetka and Liz Tinkham of River Forest served as co-chairs.
The Final Tally: More than $800,000 was netted to provide essential support for the Adler’s initiatives to improve science literacy and education in the community. adlerplanetarium.org.
