Witches, zombies and vampires were among the more than 300 guests at the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington) Oct. 25 for the Sun-Times Foundation’s inaugural Halloween Ball.


Upon arrival, partygoers accessorized their black-tie garb from tables stocked with pirate hats, masks and more, and sipped Grey Goose, Bacardi and Dewars cocktails alongside co-chairs Rita Canning and Jacky Ferro (wife of Sun-Times parent company Wrapports Chairman Michael Ferro) and emcee Bill Zwecker.


Fortune tellers and magicians worked the room before the sit-down dinner, catered by Paramount Events, which included a spread of seasonal dishes such as butternut squash soup, sweet potatoes and filet mignon with pumpkin seed pesto. Later, guests jumped from their seats when a surprise performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” sent Joffrey Ballet dancers winding through the dining area. After the performance, as DJ Megan Taylor spun from behind a cauldron, guests went trick-or-treating, filling pumpkin buckets with candy, GrubHub gift cards and items from retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Pomellato. But the real treat was the $2.3 million raised for the Foundation, which improves the lives of Chicagoans by supporting a wide range of charities.
