Permanent link  Midwinter Meeting Fashion Workshop focuses on personal brands

12/11/2014

Midwinter Meeting Special Events are an integral part of the annual program. Friday night concerts, Opening Session speakers, and elegant Dinner Dances enable participants to unwind after long days of learning, whether in the classroom or on the exhibit floor.

New this year will be the Friday afternoon Fashion Workshop and Luncheon, featuring Amy Salinger. Titled “Brand Yourself with Sass and Style,” Ms. Salinger’s program will offer participants — both male and female — ways to make use of their existing wardrobes, combined with a few budget-friendly additions, to flatter their body types and express their personal brands.

“In a competitive world, it’s a challenge for professionals to differentiate themselves from others in the marketplace,” said Susan Doroshow, who will serve as CDS president in 2015. “None of us ever knows when we might run into a patient or meet a potential referral source. A consistent visual image and strong sense of style - in other words, a personal brand - is one way that a dentist can pull away from the pack.  When you look your best, you feel more confident - and that confidence can translate into greater practice success and personal satisfaction.”

Ms. Salinger is the perfect stylista to lead the workshop, with experience working on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and TLC’s What Not to Wear and The Makeover Story. She’s also appeared on The Today Show, MTV, the Lifetime Series “Million Dollar Shoppers, and Sirius Radio’s Living with Martha Stewart; she’s been featured in the New York Times, People Style Watch, InStyle, Real Simple, The Wall Street Journal, and Life and Style.

The Midwinter Meeting-exclusive Fashion Workshop at McCormick Place includes time for lunch, the program, and a question-and-answer session with Ms. Salinger. Participants will also receive a booklet filled with style tips and advice for quick reference at home.

While runway fashion shows offer attendees a fantasy experience, Dr. Doroshow said, Ms. Salinger will give workshop participants a sense of how fashion fits into and enhances the real lives of working professionals.

“Amy Salinger believes that personal style is within everyone’s reach and budget,” Dr. Doroshow said. “The men and women who attend our program will walk away with the tools to take their wardrobes to the next level, using what’s already in our closets and without breaking the bank.”

Permanent link  Make time for an Evening of Wine and Roses

09/03/2013

The CDS Foundation invites all to attend An Evening of Wine and Roses, a wine tasting benefit Thursday evening, Nov. 7.

More than 20 wines will be available to taste beginning at 5 p.m., along with hors d'oeuvres and sweets, while guests browse the auction items and test their luck in a raffle.

“Our event supports a good cause, in a special venue, with opportunities for wonderful camaraderie,” said CDS Foundation Event Committee Chair Dave Lang, of Lang Dental Manufacturing. “There will be wonderful wine and food and sweets, and some real opportunities for reuniting with friends as well as making new business contacts.”

The action can be found in Baker and McKenzie’s 50th floor conference center, at 300 E. Randolph St. Mr. Lang said the entire south wall of the event space is glass, allowing guests a spectacular view of Millennium Park, the east Loop and the southern shore of Lake Michigan.

“Plus, at that time of night all the lights will be on in the city and it will be just terrific,” he continued. “It’s a similar experience to going up to the 95th floor of the Hancock Center for a nightcap.”

Tickets are $100 per person, benefiting the programs of the Chicago Dental Society Foundation, including the CDS Foundation Clinic.  Tickets must be purchased in advance (no gate sales), and can be found in the CDS Store.

“Proceeds go to supporting our CDS Foundation Clinic and there good work, as well as the good works of all the other CDS Foundation grantees,” Mr. Lang said. “They will be represented at the event, as they are the reason that we do this.”

Building security requires the names of all guests in advance of the event. Please email the names of all your gusts to Carolyn@cdsfound.org within 48 hours of purchasing tickets, and be prepared to show ID when you enter the building.

Parking is available in the Millennium Park garage, accessible from South Columbus Drive between Monroe and Randolph streets.

“Take advantage of being in the city that night and stay downtown for the weekend,” recommended Mr. Lang. “Do some holiday shopping and enjoy the city.”

Permanent link  Join us at Shakespeare on the Pier

08/21/2013

The Chicago Dental Society recently announced plans for the final 2013 Special Event, Shakespeare on the Pier: A live production of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac at the Shakespeare Theater, preceded by a private cocktail reception on Navy Pier Sunday, Oct. 13.

Join your colleagues at Riva, 700 E. Grand Avenue, beginning at 12:30 p.m. for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. The reception closes an hour later, giving everyone plenty of time to find thier seats at the Shakespeare Theater, 800 E. Grand Avenue, for the 2 p.m. performance.

Cyrano de Bergerac is a nobleman whose gift for romance is shadowed by his all-too-prominent nose. And the language he employs is nothing short of spectacular:  

  • "My wit is more polished than your mustache. The truth which I speak strikes more sparks from men's hearts than your spurs do from the cobblestones." 
  • "God's whiskers! Your face is hideous as the demon's in my storybook!" 
  • "You're a genuinely good man. There aren't many of you left." 
  • "And what is a kiss, specifically? A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb 'to love.' A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the bee's brief visit to a flower, secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven, the pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover's lip: 'Forever.'" 

 And this blogger’s personal favorite: "I would die at the stake rather than change a semi-colon!"

CDS President David Fulton Jr. selected a production at the Shakespeare Theater specifically to recreate the magic of the 2013 Midwinter Meeting, which carried the theme of A Midwinter Night’s Dream.

“It’s time we come full circle with my Shakespearean Dream theme and there is no better way then experiencing live theater first-hand at the gorgeous Shakespeare Theater at Navy Pier,” Dr. Fulton said. “I invite everyone out for a beautiful afternoon of cocktails, Cyrano de Bergerac, and an inside look at what helped inspire my ‘Dream.’”

CDS members only may purchase two tickets to this event in the CDS Store.  Seating is limited, so act quickly. Or, as Cyrano said,

"There. There is our soul. The same reed, the same fingers which have piped us into combat, call us softly home, in our thoughts. This is no longer the shrill call to attack, it is every shepherd who ever inhabited our land, whispering his sheep to fold. Listen. It is your hillside, your earth, your forest--your younger brother, suntanned under his red woolen cap. It is the green solitude of nights you spent beside the Sordogne. Listen my countrymen. It is our country calling."
