Each year the Civic Federation recognizes and pays collective tribute to the outstanding civic contributions of individual citizens and Chicago-area institutions at our Civic Awards Luncheon. The awards are given annually to Chicagoans and Chicago-area businesses that best exemplify the vision of civic involvement espoused by the Civic Federation founders for whom the awards are named.
The co-chairs for the luncheon event are Lester Crown, Chairman, Henry Crown and Company; W. James Farrell, Principal, SLP, LLC; Patricia Hemingway Hall, President and Chief Executive Officer, Health Care Service Corporation; and Andrew J. McKenna, Chairman, Schwarz Supply Source.
The event will begin with a reception at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 16, 2011 in the Hilton Chicago Grand Ballroom on south Michigan Avenue.
