Eve of the Eve celebration at Union Station

December 30, 2012 (CHICAGO)

As many as 2,000 people attend the annual bash every year.

The black- tie optional event benefits Highsight's scholarship program.

"Our job is to send students to private high schools in the city, and then we coach them to the best colleges possible," said Hindsight Development Coordinator Patty Hart. "We have some of our graduates who are now in college helping with the event."

The non-profit organization provides scholarships, tutoring, mentoring and leadership development programs for students in inner- city neighborhoods.
