Chicago native Jennifer Hudson celebrated the holidays by feting Michigan Avenue Magazine at the House of Blues on Tuesday, December 4, 2012.   The invitation-only event, dubbed “A Hudson Holiday,” required that all attendees bring a new unwrapped book or toy for donation to the Julian D. King Gift Foundation. The Foundation, started in honor of Hudson’s late nephew, helps Chicago children in need. Magazine president and publisher Dan Uslan and Editor-in-Chief JP Anderson presented a $10,000 check to the Foundation.
