    Moshpix: The biggest party this week may have went down the night before New Year's Eve. Close to 2,000 tickets were sold for the annual Eve of the Eve party Wednesday night at Union Station. The party raised funds for Highsight, an organization that raises scholarship money for kids to attend private schools in Chicago. Not sure if these party-goers will have enough energy to make another go at it Thursday night!
