CHICAGO, IL — Chicago House, the first organization in the Midwest to provide housing and support for people living with HIV and AIDS, is excited to celebrate its 32nd Annual Spring Brunch and Fashion Show at the Harold Washington Library! On Sunday, May 6th, from 12 — 3:30 p.m., join Chicago House for "REVIVE! Rally on the Runway," produced by Quenten Schumacher and sponsored by The Chris and Derek Bagley Family Foundation.

Emceed by NBC reporter Chris Hush, the event will be held in the beautiful Winter Garden Ballroom at Chicago's Harold Washington Library. The afternoon will feature a brunch, entertainment and fashion show headlined by local Chicago boutiques and design studios and nationally recognized designers.

With some 350 expected attendees, guests will enjoy a three-course gourmet brunch by Inspired Catering, sip on champagne and signature cocktails, and bid on fantastic live auction items including a stay in a Tuscan Villa. Guests can also purchase flowers at the one-of-a-kind "Flower Market," a favorite attendee pastime at this event. The market will feature a variety of over 60+ fresh floral arrangements from different local floral designers, all sold to benefit Chicago House.
