Chicago History Museum

26th Annual Making History Awards | (POSTPONED - NEW DATE)

EVENT POSTPONED TO October 6, 2020

Due to restrictions on public gatherings designed to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Chicago History Museum has decided to postpone the Making History Awards Dinner to Tuesday, October 6, 2020, at 6:00 pm at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago. This difficult decision was made in support of the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago’s efforts to encourage social distancing.

The Chicago History Museum wants to ensure all their supporters, guests, honorees and program participants are able to celebrate the 2020 Making History Awards at a time when we are no longer concerned with safety and well-being of all resulting from the current pandemic crisis.  

We appreciate your understanding and continued commitment and look forward to gathering with our generous supporters very soon.  

We hope you will stand with us and lend your support this year. Even though the event has moved to October, the need, given the present circumstances, is now and urgent. We understand that these times are difficult, but a commitment today would mean so much to ensure we will be able to continue to share Chicago’s stories and serve as a hub of scholarship, learning, inspiration, and civic engagement. To make your reservation, please visit our updated site here. 

The Chicago History Museum cares for, showcases, and interprets millions of authentic pieces of Chicago and U.S. history. Their ability to illuminate the past is a reminder of what really happened once upon a time, sheds light on the present and compellingly informs the future.
