In the Chicago suburb Flossmoor where the homes are simply stunning and the neighbors are pleasant and kind, we had the pleasure of attending one of the summer’s most coveted and talked about events. On Saturday September 9, 2017 the gathering of a who’s who in Illinois descended upon the property of husband and wife Spencer Leak, Jr and Donna Simpson Leak for what we would call “THE BEST GARDEN PARTY EVER!!”
Spencer and Donna hosted “A Classic Summer’s Evening” with the theme appropriately titled “Release”. The guests were dressed in their fancy and dressy fashions, the food was exquisite, desserts were divine and the sweet smell of Sangrias was free-flowing.
Spencer and Donna greeted the guests with the warmest welcome of love and gratitude of support. Some of Illinois notable dignitaries were present to include a few senators, judges and even Congresswoman Robin Kelly took a break from her Capitol Hill office to show her support of the event which normally takes place in August. However, due to a special achievement involving their daughter, this high society gathering was pushed back a couple weeks and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
“Release” being the theme for the evening had a significant meaning as Spencer guided the attendees through a trying time his daughter had from recently being bullied at her school. As he described his daughter Emma’s unfortunate experience, he simply asked the guest they would pay $0.99 to attend the party. Of course everyone screamed a loud YES!! He then said his daughter took her pain from being bullied to pen and paper and wrote the anti-bullying tune titled “High World” which had just been released on iTunes on September 8th. A mere 24 hours prior to the biggest event of the summer.
Emma Leak spoke to the guests and stated through her genuine tears that flowed ” no one deserved to be treated unfair and just know that you can get through it”. Spencer Leak graciously petitioned to the guest to go to iTunes and purchase the song for $0.99 and hashtag #radiodisney because the song is such a positive and empowering song. Click Here to hear High World and purchase this awesome song written by a phenomenal young lady.
After the guests released purple and white balloons in honor of Emma Leak’s song debut, guests were treated to a phenomenal musical performance from Chicago’s own “Empress of Soul” Terisa Griffin. Take a look at her stunning performance:
After Terisa Griffin filled everyone’s soul with her sensual sounds we danced the night away to music provided by The Chosen Few DJs own Alan King.
This was by far one of the classiest events we’ve been to and we thank Donna and Spencer Leak, Jr. for their hospitality and inviting us.
We can’t wait until next year!!
