Four years ago Anna DeShawn decided to celebrate her birthday by starting an annual benefit gala to help support her favorite non profits. Well this is the first year we’vde moved away from the birthday celebration and decided to just celebrate being community together.

This year we are pleased to annouce that the proceeds will go to A Long Walk Home, Inc.! Founded in 2003, A Long Walk Home, Inc. (ALWH) is a Chicago-based national non-profit that uses art to educate, inspire, and mobilize young people to end violence against girls and women.

When you arrive at the Purple Tie be ready to purchase some amazing pieces of art, buy some raffle ticktets, have a nice time and enjoy great entertainment.

Everyone (over 21) are welcome and Sidetrack is wheelchair accessible!
