Jessica O'Brien Fashion Fundraiser Election Eve

Jessica A. O'Brien defeated two candidates in the March Primary to claim the Democratic nomination for the countywide Simmons, Jr. vacancy. She faces no opposition in next week's election (no Democratic nominee for a countywide Circuit Court vacancy faces any Republican opposition) but O'Brien does have a campaign debt to retire.

Accordingly, the Jessica O'Brien for Judge Committee is planning a program, "Fire, Fashion & Politics," on Monday, November 5, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Chicago Firehouse Restaurant, 1401 S. Michigan Avenue, in Chicago.

Summer Jackson-Cole, of WCIU-TV, will serve as host of the fashion show. Cameron Croft, Social Entrepreneur, and Carmen C. Rivera, Assistant to the Publisher of Chicago Magazine, will be Master and Mistress of Ceremonies. The "headlining fashion designer" is Borris Powell. Special appearances by local actors from the NBC-TV series Chicago Fire are also planned. To view the entire program for the event, see O'Brien's campaign website.

Tickets are $50 a person in advance, $75 at the door. To reserve tickets, see the website or email
