    Pete Wentz will perform a special DJ set at the Green Tie Ball.

    Next month's Green Tie Ball is getting a little rock & roll flavor this year.

    Chicago native Pete Wentz will be working the DJ deck at the 21st annual charity ball, scheduled for September 15 at A. Finkl & Sons (2011 North Southport Ave).

    This year's event should be especially visually appealing, with an Alice in Wonderland-inspired theme.

    Tickets start at $135 for the gala, which includes premium bars, food from 60 Chicago restaurants and additional live entertainment and performances by Redmoon Theatre.

    Proceeds from the event benefit Chicago Gateway Green, a non-profit organization that helps beautify the area's expressways, gateways and communities.
