PAWS Beach Party 2013


Candid Candace Chicago, hosted by Candace Jordan on, allows viewers to catch a glimpse of what the city’s ‘who’s who’ are up to.

On Thursday, July 18, Ms. Jordan attended the 11th Annual PAWS Chicago Beach Party, which was emceed by Bill Kurtis. Over 500 guests and 100 beachwear-clad pups headed to Castaways to lounge by the beach. Everyone enjoyed drinks, small bites, silent and live auctions, and dancing to live music by Tropixsplosion. All funds raised from the Beach Party went directly to the saving the lives of Chicago’s homeless pets. Here, Ms. Jordan takes you inside the beach party. Who’s ready for beach blanket bingo?
