Sista Socialites Redefining Aging Gracefully

The Chicago Sun-Times Newspaper is one of the few "major dallies" that has a Society section with good multicultural representation.

Last month, The Women’s Board of Ravinia hosted the Ravinia Festival’s annual Gala Benefit. Pl├ícido Domingo headlined the Gala performance. More than 1200 attendees forked out $275 per person to enjoy the evening.

The Fab Sista Socialites pictured left to right are: Linda Johnson Rice, Desiree Rogers (CEO of the People’s Energy Company), Valerie Jarrett (Chair of Chicago’s Stock Exchange), and Marguerite Orane (Management Consultant).

You gotta love Ms. Desiree at age 46 rocking the sequined mini dress and showing off her toned legs!

All of the ladies are over 45 I believe and they provide me inspiration that aging fabulously after 40 can happen for all of us.
