Meet our VIP staff

Angela Burdick
Founder-CEO
Nothing is impossible. The word itself says “I’m Possible”—Audrey Hepburn

Angela Burdick is VIP’s CEO with heart! In 2003 Angela created VIP Bachelorette; a company specifically centered on the concept of planning ‘Bachelorette Parties with Class.’ Ensuring that a package was offered for every type of bride and keeping the packages affordable is how the company continued to grow. In 2005 she opened VIP Chicago Parties—made up of VIP Bachelorette, VIP Bachelor and VIP Birthdays. Today, VIP is going strong living up to its mission to elevate the Bachelorette party to a fun rite of passage, a time to celebrate with friends and create lasting memories.

At the core of Angela’s dedication is her commitment to providing assistance to sexually abused women and children. As a survivor of sexual abuse, Angela studied criminal justice and Paralegal Studies in hopes of assisting even more. A proud achievement for Angela came in 2004 when she founded the Chicago branch of Women against Sexual Predators (WASP), an organization created to protect the rights and innocence of children and to inform schools and communities about sexual predators in their area. In 2015 Angela continues her efforts as she opens Illinois SASS! Stay tuned!
