About Us

We've Got It! Chicago is a full service Event Planning company that provides consciously creative and cost-effective event experiences. We consider ourselves social(ly responsible) butterflies - and want to help you become one too!

WGIC is owned by our lead planner, Katie Karakosta. Katie has been in the hospitality business her whole life as her parents, aunts, uncles and even cousins own restaurants throughout the country. For as long as she has been alive, she's been 'hosting' others. In college, Katie stuck to what she knew best and majored in Special Events at the University of Florida (Go Gators!).  After an internship with Toyota planning amazing, large scale incentive trips and a couple of years of corporate-sit-behind-a-boring-desk planning, she decided she wanted to break out and do her own thing.  Katie moved to Chicago and founded WGIC in 2009.   And the rest is history.
