This week Candace Jordan covered the ninth annual Kandy Kane Ball & Toy Drive, a sold out event with more than 1,000 guests celebrating at Joe's Bar. The Kandy Kane Ball was created in 2002 by some friends who decided to throw a surprise party for Courtney Dempsey, who was stricken with cancer. Dempsey's only wish was to provide toys for chicago's underprivileged children. To learn more about this event read Candace Jordan's column "Candid Candace."
