The Green Tie Ball, one of the longest running charity events in Chicago, returned Sept. 15 at Artifact Events on Ravenswood. This year's theme, "Devil in the Green City," focused on a 1893 setting and guests were encouraged to dress for the occasion. A breezy outdoor area featured Don Julio Tequila and, in every corner of the venue, booths of food were present from restaurants like Texas De Brazil, STK Steakhouse and Taco Joint.

A silent auction and gambling from Rivers Casino added to the fun evening.

Chicago Fire's Taylor Kinney, who plays Lieutenant Kelly Severide on the TV show, stopped to chat about environmental efforts. When asked about a role he would want to play in the future, he mentioned a remake of Jeremiah Johnson—a movie that originally starred Robert Redford—would be his dream. He added that he is very excited about Chicago Fire changing days to Thursdays, debuting the sixth season Sept. 28.

Known for producing Lady Gaga albums and opening for her concert most recently at Wrigley Field, DJ White Shadow spoke with Windy City Times about his humble beginnings growing up on a farm in Ohio. He moved to Detroit as a kid and wanted to learn to DJ. The name originated from being the only white person in the club at his first gig.

While DJing Chicago house music at a club in LA called Hive, he met Gaga's manager, who had him create interludes for her Monster Ball Tour. This led to more collaborations, most recently with the hit track "The Cure." Musically, he mentioned listening to Post Malone, Halsey, Shawn Mendes and The Kool Kids. He said he supports the LGBT community because of its "awesomeness," adding, "If everyone could treat people how they want to be treated this world would be a good place to live."

He is currently working on a new song with Diana Ross to perform at the American Music Awards and will be touring with Gaga before working on a new record with her as well.

The fundraiser ended at 1 a.m., after Shadow's lively dance set.
