Brentano Contributed to 10th Annual Champagne Wrapture
Donation helped Chicago House raise money for HIV and AIDS

Chicago House Champagne Wrapture
In what has become an annual tradition, Brentano's contribution to Chicago House for their mid-winter extravaganza, Champagne Wrapture, helped the local non-profit raise over $51,000 to "provide permanent, community-based housing, supportive services, and prevention outreach to individuals and families struggling with HIV and AIDS."

The sold-out event on January 26, 2012, drew over 400 people to the SkyDeck at Willis Tower for an evening dubbed "Clicquot in the Sky." Surrounded by vibrant orange umbrellas, a Veuve Clicquot signature that lent itself to the aerial atmosphere, guests sampled hors d'oeuvres and, of course, champagne, while vying for space at an auction buffet featuring artwork, gift baskets, and bottle sculptures.

Brentano's donation, a bottle of Veuve Clicquot and two custom pillows upholstered in Chien Tree and Cotillion--both fabrics designed by Brentano Design Director Iris Wang, inspired competitive bidding. Drawn to these elegant fabrics with subtle sheen, the winning bidder took home a true prize--an enduring reminder of a champagne-filled evening.
