The event’s attendance has grown to over 800 supporters and advocates each year and has emerged as the premier affair to celebrate Chicago’s legendary leaders and their contributions to the civic and cultural skyline.  The Legendary Landmarks Celebration is an inspiring evening full of entertainment, networking, and tributes to our city’s Legendary Landmarks.
