Only a few days away, this is a NOT TO BE MISSED event. Saturday, November 8, 2015 will be the night of fashion in Chicago. The beautiful leading ladies of the Chicago Bears and Black Hawk players, along with notable Chicago Business Women and Visionaries (Randi Moxi and Monika Rydz-Philp) will grace the runway at the Park West wearing the season's hottest fashions. The two organizations that will receive the benefits from the charity event are:

Black Hawk's player Bryan Bickell and his beautiful wife Amanda have been huge advocates for enhancing the lives of the Pit bull animal breed. They donate to educational programs and ensure there is strong advocacy in saving the Pit Bull animal breed through their Bryan and Amanda Bickell Foundation.

As the widow of a retired Chicago Police, my goal is to ensure his legacy and love for serving others lives on through the work that I do. I do photography for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation and enjoy covering their events. This year was bittersweet because I am moving into the 2nd year of his death, and the wound is still there with much healing, but I know he would want me to move forward and be the change I wish to see in the world. When I received the request to photograph the event, it took a couple of days for me to process and think about what my response would be. I decided to do it for him and for me. For him because he would be out taking photography and supporting his colleagues, but for me because I needed to be in the presence of his colleagues and feel a certain sense of safety that's been missing since his death.

The event was great and was well worth my time. I got to see some of his friends AND support a great cause that he was so passionate about. Check out the pictures and let me know if you see anyone you recognize! Catch me on twitter to continue the conversation @dawgelene
