Thank you to everyone who made the 19th Annual Fall Benefit at The Field Museum a big success! Over 2,000 people from Chicago’s legal community came together on Saturday, November 7 to support and celebrate the CBF’s mission (alongside Sue!). The casual, family-friendly event featured tasty comfort food, unique kids’ activities, a sprawling silent auction, live music, open bar, complimentary parking, and access to the museum’s many popular exhibits, including the newest permanent exhibit, Cyrus Tang Hall of China, and special exhibit Mammoths and Mastodons: Titans of the Ice Age. Photos from the event show smiles all around.
Event Co-chairs Anna Britt (Motorola Mobility LLC) and Kelly M. Warner (Schiff Hardin LLP) shared:
“We were proud to be the co-chairs of this year’s event, and we hope those of you who were able to attend the event had as much fun as we did! Thanks again to all of you and the many firm and company sponsors who helped make this year’s event such a great success. Your support of the CBF will make a big difference in our common cause of making the justice system more fair, accessible, and efficient for all.”
Congratulations to Jack McClain, one of many who signed the CBF’s Justice Pledge at the event and the winner of this year’s Drawing for Justice! A special $1,000 grant will be made in Jack’s honor to The Law Project, one of the CBF’s many outstanding partner organizations that Jack chose as the winner of this year’s drawing.
If you were not able to join us this year, you can still add your support for this critical work. Make a donation to the CBF online or by calling Trish Roos at the CBF at (312) 554-8020.
Save the date for next year’s Fall Benefit on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at the Museum of Science & Industry!
