Leadership Greater Chicago

Celebrate Leaders

Each year, more than 500 business, political, and civic leaders come together for Leadership Greater Chicago’s (LGC) annual Celebrate Leaders benefit. The event recognizes and celebrates LGC Fellows, community leaders, and organizations for making a significant and transformative impact on our region.

The 2018 celebration will be extra special as LGC marks the 35th anniversary of its founding by The Chicago Community Trust. Proceeds from this important evening support LGC’s Signature Fellows Program and the organization’s efforts to build Chicago’s civic leadership pipeline. Attendees will enjoy premier networking opportunities and the presentation of LGC's annual civic leadership awards.
