The festivities will take place at the super-sleek RM Champagne Salon in the West Loop from 5:30 to 9 p.m. A $10 cash donation gets you one cocktail plus complimentary appetizers and, of course, do-gooder status. Entry is not guaranteed (this event always packs the house), so try to make this your first stop after work. Who couldn't use a drink by then?
RM Champagne Salon 116 North Green Street (between Washington Boulevard and Randolph Street); 312-243-1199.
