Flirt for the Red Cross this Valentine's Day Season!

The Red Cross Auxiliary Board will present our inaugural Flirting for Disaster with the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender community in partnership with the Northalsted Area Merchants Association on February 5th from 6-9pm at Hydrate (3458 N. Halsted Street).
This is a great opportunity to sip cocktails with other Chicago professionals and flirt the night away at this loveable, Valentine’s Day-themed happy hour party!

The bar will be open for free drinks from 6-7:30 and special featured drinks by 10 Cane Rum, Absolut, and Budweiser will be all night long! The Kit Kat Divas will be performing and a leather fashion show by Shel-Don Chicago with eyewear by I.D. Chicago will show off the hottest trends of the season! Appetizers will also be complimentary and the first 100 guests will receive free gift bags.

Additional vendors from the Northalsted Area Merchants Association will be present offering specials and the Red Cross will be present to provide information on HIV/AIDS Awareness and classes.

All of the funds raised will go directly to support the Chicago Red Cross’ lifesaving services.
Get your tickets in advance for discounted pricing and express check in at the event! Tickets are only $20 in advance and will be $25 at the door. You can purchase tickets by visiting or call me at 312-729-6130.

I hope you will join us at what is sure to be a fabulous night of flirting fun in Boystown!

This event is part of a Series of Flirting for Disaster events, which take place throughout the year at hip, trendy venues where Chicago professionals can network and socialize, all while raising money for the Red Cross! You can learn more about our other scheduled events at and I hope to see you at an event soon!
