The Chicago Defender’s Carol Bell, director of finance, received a special honor, “A Local Chicago Entrepreneur and Business Leader You Should Know,” from Davis Media Inc., a Chicago-based event planning and corporate networking enterprise headed by Jacqueline E. Davis, CEO, during “A Tres Blanc Affair” at The New Macello Cucina di Puglia, 1235 W. Lake St. Other Davis Media officers are Anthony Green, executive program director; and Jon Johnson public relations director. According to A.

Corliss High School in Bell’s name, her alma mater. Some 75-plus family, friends and colleagues of Bell, most dressed in the theme of the fundraiser, “all white,” were in attendance at the evening affair, which featured a delicious buffet of assorted sweets, fruits and cocktails in addition to music, a vocalist and networking.
