The DuSable Museum Women’s Board hosted its 30th Annual Fundraiser, The Glitz, at the Tinley Park Convention Center Ballroom on a night of music, fun, food and elegance.

The room was filled with dignitaries, VIPs and everyone in between as Chri Christmas and DJ Maurice “Ice” Culpepper provided the sounds. Proceeds from the event went to fund educational endeavors at the DuSable Black History Museum and Education Center.

Thus, Sunday night’s gala personified “partying with a purpose.”

Without further adieu, here are some photos from this memorable event:
