Max Lacewell Foundation Photo Booth

Photo Booth of the Stars was very blessed to take part in the “Max Lacewell Foundation Best Day Evuh!” Gala 2012! Bobaks Signature Events hosted this spectacular evening for a truly wonderful cause! A gourmet dinner, silent auction, and delightful desserts were just a small portion of this festive evening.

Photo Booth of the Stars would like to give you a little background on Max on his amazing life!  We quote this from the foundations website:

“Max was known by his nickname, “Little Dude,” but there was nothing “little” about Max and how he touched so many people in his short life.”

When he was five, he started Kindergarten … and was so excited about going to the same school his big sister attended. He loved sushi, legos, and Star Wars. Just weeks after heading off on the first day of school, he began a brave battle with DIPG, an aggressive pediatric brain cancer. It proved to be an opponent that was too strong to beat.

Max lives on in the hearts of the many people he connected with … and we are determined to do what we can to help find the cure for DIPG so other “little dudes” can have more powerful weapons against this cancer.

Photo Booth of the Stars was one of many spectacular vendors that showed support to this great cause. The Jesse White Tumbler’s made the evening magical with all their jumps, leaps, and twists! Special appearances from Max’s favorite Star Wars hero’s were an absolute must! Guests couldn’t believe their eyes as these futuristic characters made their grand entrance!  These George Lucas stars were an evening show stopper!

A big thank you to the Max Lacewell Foundation for including a Photo Booth of the Stars Chicago photo booth in this magnificent event!

Pump it Up Photo Booth Rentals

Kids love to jump and what better place to do it than at Pump it Up! Why not let the kids jump and take pictures in a photo booth too? Goody bags are boring. Kids don’t want candy, balloons, and pencils! Kids love posing for the camera. Now add in some crazy hats and glasses and lets get this party started!

Photo Booth of the Stars was hired as an unique addition to a Pump it Up birthday party in June. Kids and parents alike (and a few employees, we won’t mention names) couldn’t get enough of the photobooth rental! Parents were calling raving about our photo booths! They absolutely loved how much fun a photo booth added to the party. Since that party we have teamed up with Pump it Up and our photo booth rentals are now offered to all clients. Birthday parties are so much more fun with pictures. Let the kids jump, eat pizza and cake, then ham it up in the photobooth! Say goodbye to boring and hello to photo booth fun!

Corporate & Fundraiser Photo Booth Rentals

Many corporations include photo booths in their conventions, trade shows, parties, office meeting, and gatherings. Photo booth rentals in the Chicago area are not only affordable but tons of fun. Both weekdays and weekends alike are very popular for corporations to hold conventions or trade shows that include one or more photo booths. Rates on photo booth rentals are very inexpensive. Most corporate photo booth rentals operate for three hours or more. This allows plenty of time for both employees or guests to access the photobooth numerous times throughout the event.

Photo Booth of the Stars can brand the bottom of your photo booth strips with a company logo and event name. Branding the photo booth strips is extremely effective in advertising at trade shows and conventions. Trade show flyers and brochures will more than likely be tomorrows trash. Guests never throw away photo booth pictures. Your company logo will leave a lasting impression on potential clients for many years to come.

Photo booth rentals also lighten the mood and turn work into fun. Guests can jump in the photo booth to relieve work stress and get in a quick laugh. Photo booth rentals are a great addition to events in Chicago hosting out of town clients. The unique idea of incorporating a photo booth rental will turn potential clients into clients overnight. Adding a photobooth is a great team building experience for all types of employees.

Charity events and fundraisers are also perfect events to include a photo booth. Guests attending and donating money to great causes want more than just dinner and dancing. Photo booths add a special and unique touch that guests will remember forever. Boring fundraisers are a thing of the past. Add a photo booth to your charity event and keep the guests coming back year after year. Raising more money each year for your foundation is the goal and Photo Booth of the Stars Chicago is the perfect choice to increase revenue. Guests will save their photo booth pictures year after year showing them off to friends and family. Your charities logo on the photo booth strips will remind guests to invite everyone they know to next years fundraiser! Photo Booth of the Stars photo booths will make your Chicago area fundraiser a smashing success!

Chicago Bears Prevent Child Abuse America

Photo Booth of the Stars was proud to rock out an open air photo booth at the Chicago Bears Prevent Child Abuse America fundraiser. Our friend Johnny Knox of the Chicago Bears was host to this fabulous event. Other Bears players made their presence known with grand entrances. Adults and children of all ages stood in line waiting for their chance at an autograph opportunity. The children in the photo below were thrilled to have the once in a lifetime chance to have their photo snapped with star Bears player Johnny Knox!

Dinner and drinks were served followed by a spectacular auction. The photo booth rental was a smashing hit as always. Guests cuddled close to their favorite player while the photobooth captured every moment of the joy.

Later in the evening it was time to show off your bowling skills and take on one of the Chicago Bears. Chicago area bowling alley Pinstripes hosted this show stopping event. Johnny Know took the lead early on and won the tournament by a landslide. Photo Booth of the Stars was proud to donate an open air photo booth rental to this great organization. Years to come guests will look back and remember this wonderful charity event through all their amazing photo booth strips!

Zachary Tran Memorial Photo Booth

Photo Booth of the Stars was proud to be a sponsor and donate a photo booth rental to the Zachary Tran Memorial Fund. Soccer safety is something parents take for granted. Every weekend across America thousands of soccer games are played. Did you ever question your child’s safety while on the field? We are not talking about slips, falls, or bad weather. We are talking about soccer goals not being secured to the ground properly causing injury or even death to innocent children worldwide. Six year old Zachary lost his life tragically on October 1, 2003. Zachary was at soccer practice when an unsecured metal soccer goal fell on him. Zachary’s Mother and Father host fundraising events in his memory yearly. They have passed soccer safety laws in Illinois and other states to prevent future tragedies.

This fabulous event was held in Vernon Hills a Chicago area suburb. Decorated in a Hawaiian theme the room looked lush and tropical. The tiki bar served Bob Chinn’s mai tais as guests mingled about. Children enjoyed a variety of activities such as hair feathers, moon jumps, balloon making, and of coarse the photo booth rental. The Chicago photo booth ran throughout the evening and was never empty. The evening was a smashing success and Photo Booth of the Stars was proud to sponsor such a wonderful cause. The photo booth rental was a excellent addition allowing guests to remember this fabulous event through photos!

Halloween Photo Booth and Red Carpet Shots

Spooktacular time had by all at  John Barleycorn Halloween Bash 2012. Both Saints and Sinners were out in full force. Guests by the hundreds flocked into the festively decorated Chicago area night club! Tommie Sunshine mixed tunes as guests danced the night away. Photo Booth of the Stars rolled out the red carpet, stanchions, and step and repeat backdrop to create a Hollywood like entrance.

We snapped hundreds of photos as guests posed in costume on the red carpet. We also captured all the guests in costumes inside our premiere photobooth! Yes, that’s right we offered two amazing options for the freakishly dressed patrons. Signature Halloween cocktails and appetizers were flowing as guests mingled amongst friends. Guests were clad in all sorts of costumes; zombies, aliens, clowns and even a special appearance from our two presidential candidates.


Saints and Sinners alike had a fantastic evening enjoying all the Chicago style festivities including both the photo booth rental and Hollywood style red carpet photos. Looking forward to next years goulishly spooktacular event!
