Thanks for Making this Year’s Fall Benefit a Big Success!

Thank you to everyone who made the 27th Annual Fall Benefit at the Museum of Science & Industry a huge success! Nearly 2,000 people from throughout Chicago’s legal community came together on Saturday, November 18 to support and celebrate the CBF mission.

The casual, family-friendly event again featured tasty comfort food, special kids’ activities, a  silent auction and raffle, live music, an open bar, complimentary parking, and access to the museum’s many popular exhibits including Christmas Around the World and this year’s special exhibit Pompeii: The Exhibition.  

A special thanks to this year’s Co-Chairs Robert Collins of Latham & Watkins LLP, and Kathy Malamis of Zurich North America for their leadership and all of the generous sponsors for continuing to make this great event possible.

We also want to recognize our many new Fall Benefit sponsors this year as it was a record breaking year –including Croke Fairchild Duarte & Beres LLC, Honigman LLP, Kralovec & Conboy, MBHB, The Prinz Law Firm, Polsinelli, and Sperling & Slater, LLC—as well as our Cornerstone sponsors who either committed to this leadership level for the first time or increased their level of support: Cooley LLP; Latham & Watkins LLP; McDermott Will & Emery; Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP; and The Toney Law Firm, LLC.

Thank you again to all the generous Fall Benefit partners and supporters who continue to build a fairer and better justice system together through the CBF!
