Above the Skyline embodies FortÃ© Productionsâ€™ and Hardt & Soulâ€™s philosophy of creating unique, intimate, and unforgettable experiences for audiences, utilizing alternative venues while showcasing innovative futuristic music, art and fashion. Above the Skyline offers an atypical event experience in Chicago by showcasing world renowned DJ, artist, and designer talent at dual indoor/outdoor rooftop decks at River City, located at 800 S. Wells. The first rooftop, Skyline Park, is a picturesque 1.5-acre park with grassy hills, trees, plants and flowers, chairs, benches and tables, with the Chicago River and skyscrapers as the backdrop. The second rooftop is a more industrial setting with a 360-degree view of downtown Chicago, the Chicago River, and Lake Michigan. Industrial picnic benches, chairs, and lounge-chairs are available for guests. DJs will provide the musical entertainment and local artists will showcase their art in each building and at booths, while models will be wearing local designer fashion. Above the Skyline will be produced in benefit of For the Mamas, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for women whose lives are affected by cancer and its treatment. Proceeds raised will be used to provide these women with massage, acupuncture, manicures, pedicures, chiropractic treatment, yoga, music lessons, art lessons, and more free of charge. Additional programs will also include education and information, classes on exercise, nutrition, and stress reduction, as well as psychological support for these women, their families and friends. In addition to having DJs, artists and designers, Above the Skyline will also have on-premise licensed massage therapists and acupuncturists offering services free of charge to attendees, serving as an introduction to some of the services that will be provided by For the Mamas. For the Mamas recognizes and cherishes the mothers and women in our lives. This special launch party will be the first of many events that FortÃ© Productions intends to promote as a fundraising vehicle benefiting For the Mamas.
