Lady Gaga and her beau Taylor Kinney went out to dinner for charity at Chicago’s United Center on January 8th. The couple stepped out together in support of the Chicago Bulls annual charity dinner. For those of you unfamiliar, this particular event raises dollars to support the work of Chicago Bulls Charities, which includes a cocktail reception, silent auctions and entertainment and the pop superstar and the Chicago Fire star were on hand to join the festivities.
Gaga is seen posing alongside her man and Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen and his wife Larsa in the photo above.
The Pippens were honored for their work and Kinney and Gaga mingled with the basketball couple, receiving a basketball signed by Scottie. Later, the group went to the after-party at hot spot Studio Paris. It looks like Taylor is in awe of his signed ball!
Of being honored, Pippen said “It’s very humbling to see so many familiar faces, family members, longtime friends and former teammates in attendance and it really means a lot. What we accomplished on the court was special and unmatched in many ways. And while all of that success brought us fame and fortune, it also put me into a position where I’m able to give back to the city that has given me so much.”
“I’ve had several opportunities to work with Nancy Reinsdorf, Leslie Forman and the Chicago Bulls Charities over the years and it’s always such a great experience,” said Larsa Pippen. “Scottie and I have been blessed with a lot in our lifetime together and we’re fortunate to be in a position where we can have a positive impact on our community and those in it. Not only is it the right thing to do as people, but it’s the right thing to do as parents of four young children who we are trying to raise in the best possible way.”
Congratulations to Scottie and Larsa Pippen and thank YOU for giving back!
