The Chicago Lighthouse presented its popular Flair luncheon and fashion show at The Drake Hotel in early October. Chicago’s  runway  “usual suspects” , including iconic female impersonator and fashion show regular Chili Pepper, delighted guests with their well-practiced style. The event raised a record amount of more than $135,000 for the Lighthouse children.

 Star of the afternoon was Honoree Susan Griffiths Gohl, escorted by Jonathan Grabill. They were joined by nearly 200 luncheon-fashion show regulars.
