Welcome to a beautiful evening for this 2nd annual ‘Be Mine’ event that promises to celebrate the lives of the children we serve – children in foster care and children awaiting adoption from foster care. The ‘Be Mine’ event will be held at Chicago’s famous Tortoise Supper Club. Join us on Friday, February 28, as it promises a lot of fun and surprises, including a new video that we have produced to be premiered on this night. The auctioneer is the most famous auctioneer from Chicago. And there will be special entertainment by a very special guest who will remain secret, for now. Please join us for this special evening and register below:
Here is some history on the Tortoise Supper Club: The Tortoise Supper Club reminds us that we are living in historic times. The Tortoise Club is a seclusive, white-table cloth ode to Chicago’s good old days, located in River North. They have it all: soft-leather booths, brass fixtures, lobster thermidor – the are the captains of the industry. If the Chicago History Museum opened a quintessential Loop restaurant, it might look something like this. It’s all here. The soft-leather booths. The brass fixtures. The lobster thermidor. The crooked-but-lovable pols. The mobsters. The molls. The captains of industry. The dining-room caricatures depicting an assorted cast of scoundrels and folk heroes from this city’s past. Scan the QR on the painting with your phone and you’ll bring up a little backstory. The evening is is full of promise!
Let It Be Us is a unique nonprofit changing the landscape of foster care and adoption in Illinois by supporting the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and all Illinois Child Welfare Agencies.
