Join Imerman Angels, a Public Relations Chicago client, as they reflect on the success of the past decade and look forward to the next! The one-on-one cancer support community will kick off its 10th Anniversary Celebration at their annual Blue & White Party on Thursday, March 24 from 7 – 11 p.m. at the I|O Godfrey (127 W Huron St).
Guests of the Imerman Angels Blue & White Party will walk the red carpet, enjoy appetizers, and sip on select drinks from the open bar including a special signature cocktail – the Angel Mule. During this time, partygoers will meet extraordinary individuals, Imerman Angels’ supporters, and hear inspiring stories from cancer survivors. Guests will also enjoy an exciting raffle featuring Beyonce and Coldplay tickets, signed Jonathan Toews jersey and Blackhawks tickets, RPM Steak and Studio Paris certificates, 2 tickets to an exclusive Hollywood premier starring Ed Helms and Owen Wilson, and much more. The emcee for the night will be FOX Good Day Chicago Anchor, Corey McPherrin.
“There’s nobody I know who’s more passionate, more dedicated, and more committed to his cause than Jonny,” says Corey McPherrin. “As a long-time supporter of Imerman Angels and a cancer survivor myself, I couldn’t be more honored to serve as emcee support.”
“Imerman Angels started with a simple concept: to connect a cancer fighter with a survivor for emotional support,” says Howard Tullman, CEO of 1871 and Imerman Angels Board Member. “After a decade, the organization is now recognized as a leader not only within the cancer community, but also within the medical field. What was once a simple idea ten years ago is now an essential resource, with global reach, for anyone fighting a harrowing disease like cancer.”
VIP tickets for the Blue & White Party are $150 and include an exclusive cocktail reception from 6 – 7 p.m. Space is limited. General admission tickets are $85.

“While Imerman Angels celebrates this milestone anniversary of enabling one-on-one cancer support, we’ve only just begun to fulfill our mission,” says Imerman Angels CEO and Executive Director Ben Bornstein. “Millions of people across the world- our family, friends, co-workers and neighbors- will continue to be diagnosed with cancer, but they will never have to face it alone. As a three-time survivor I am driven, along with our staff, volunteers, donors and supporters, to help more people with our incredible program. We look forward to our next chapter as we continue this fight against cancer together.”
