14th Annual Gala


Thank you to all who attended our 14th Annual Gala on Friday, August 25, 2017.  It was a beautiful evening spent under the famed Tiffany Dome, connecting with friends and celebrating all that CCL has to offer.  As always, we could not do it without you!


13th Annual Gala

unnamedOur 13th Annual Gala took place at the Chicago Cultural Center on August 20th, 2016.  It was a smash!  Definitely one of our best galas yet.

We strongly believe that our community cultivates a garden of shared resources, transformational relationships and daring innovation. Each person is a partner in the work that yields new economic opportunities and changes lives.  Thanks to all who made this night such a success!
