Guests came together for two important reasons at Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center last October: to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the 007 James Bond franchise and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The first annual “En Noir: A Casino Royale Masquerade” event was designed to benefit Imerman Angels, a one-onone cancer support community that pairs a cancer fighter, survivor or caregiver with someone who has fought and survived the same type of cancer. Guests dressed in black-tie or masquerade attire and were treated to themed cocktails from a premium bar and chef-driven hors d’oeuvres. The night’s entertainment included casino tables, aerialist performances and singer Erin Boheme, who delivered renditions of Bond’s most memorable movie songs.

Crafted by award-winning bartender and spirits professional Peter Vestinos, this refreshing summer sipper—a gin and tonic at its heart—has been artfully infused by the spirits and flavors of Greece and the country’s cuisine. “The Chareau liqueur provides Mediterranean flavors of cucumber, mint, and lemon and the Verino Mastiha integrates a signature herbal resin flavor, while the cardamom adds a unique earthy and exotic note,” says Vestinos.
