Legendary Landmarks Celebration

The Legendary Landmarks Celebration is an annual event honoring civic and business leaders who have positively impacted Illinois’ cultural and physical landscape. More than 750 guests gather in the elegant Grand Ballroom at the Hilton Chicago each year to pay tribute to these honorees and to support Landmarks Illinois. Pre- and post-dinner receptions allow guests to mingle over generous cocktails and desserts. Event proceeds benefit Landmarks Illinois’ advocacy and grants programs.
