Jennifer Aniston, Will Ferrell & sexy local TV news stars as showgirls: This Halloween party really had it all
Oh. My. Gah. Samuel L. Jackson in the house? John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John straight out of Grease, Jennifer Aniston and Ron Livingston a la Office Space and Will Ferrell and Christina Applegate as they appeared in Anchorman . . .
What a wild circus of a costumed fete whose ringmasters Lindley and Jason Arnoldy called upon a gaggle of 150 young professionals Saturday to abandon corporate attire in favor of ensembles roused by Internet memes, favorite flicks and urban legends.

Rosemont Social Club hosted St. Luke's Medical Center's PULSE young professionals' first major fundraiser-cum-dance-party, with DJ Mav's magic at the turntables rocking the high-decibel gathering. The Hendricks Gin and Reyka Vodka heavy-handed potations were strong enough to roll your eyes to the back of your head.
After all "Saints and Sinners" bid adieu, $25,000 was raised with support from sponsors that included BMW West, Royal Sonesta Hotel, Hamilton Shirts, Hotel Icon, Sparrow Bar + Cookshop, Gardere, Triten Corp. and Christine Falgout-Island Operating Co.
