It was a magical evening at the IFA inaugural Magic Hour Gala

Angie Gaffney, Betsy Steinberg and the IFA Team know how to party!

The IFA inaugural Magic Hour Gala held at the swanky Wildman BT last night, began the evening with a VIP Cocktail Hour. Among the celebrities attending were LaRoyce Hawkins of Chicago P.D. and Eamonn Walker and Christian Stolte of Chicago Fire.

Guests began to fill the room, as friends, family, and the who’s who in Chicago’s film and television scene enjoyed the festive atmosphere created by Fierce Productions.

The highlight of the evening was a special tribute to Chicago’s rising star, filmmaker McKenzie Chinn, and former President and co-founder of Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, Alex Pissios, in honor of the huge impact he has made on the success of the Chicago Film and TV industry.

Alex, I hope you know how much you are loved and missed by the community you helped to unite.

As the evening progressed, there was a lovely dinner station by Cocina Fusion, a silent auction, and then it was time to let loose for a night of dancing with beats provided by The DJ Firm, clearly the experts for getting the gang into party mode.

The event was a huge success and truly a magical evening. Guests took to social media to show their delight.
