Celebrating its 33rd annual Spring Brunch and Fashion Show at the Harold Washington Library's Winter Garden Ballroom, Chicago House paid homage to the '70s.

This year's theme—"Rhapsody on the Runway"—featured everything from sequins to shout-outs to the iconic rock band Queen.

Discussing the event and Chicago House's mission, Interim CEO Judy Perloff told Windy City Times, "I think what's really unique about Chicago House is that we go to the communities that really need us the most." She added, "We have an incredible client story this year about her experience with the organization."

Chicago House Vice Chair Ryan Garrison saw this year's event as a celebration based on the organization's recent effort to add new housing units. "It's exciting this year that we have this expansion in our housing program," he said, adding "This is the year we're going to be housing more individuals than we ever historically have."

During the event guests had an opportunity to purchase flowers at what's become the annual "Flower Market."

Chicago House also held a live auction during the event to raise funds for the organization. The brunch culminated in the much-anticipated fashion show featuring designs from several local designers and boutiques.

With NBC reporter Chris Hush emceeing, the event also recognized Eataly as the 2019 Spirit Award recipient for its partnership with Chicago House.
