Our return-to-in-person events was a wonderful opportunity to see so many friends and supporters Tuesday evening at the University Club.

Congratulations to our honorees, Illinois House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch and Advocate of the Year Award Sarah Brune, Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago Policy Director.

While Speaker Welch was unable to join us in person he was ably represented by state Rep. Kam Buckner and via a pre-recorded video.

In another highlight of the evening, we received many generous contributions to fund Woodstock Institute’s mission, all of which were doubled, thanks to a dollar-for-dollar matching gift from Lending Club.

Again thank you, and thanks to all who joined us Tuesday. We’re already planning for 2023, when Woodstock Institute will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
