Under the night sky and twinkling lights of the Adler Planetarium, over 240 guests came out on Tuesday, September 27 for Dinner of Champions. This event brings together business leaders in the Chicagoland area who are committed to a world free of MS. This year's event was chaired by Boeing Chairman, President and CEO, Dennis Muilenburg.
The night kicked off with cocktails and live music against the backdrop of the Chicago skyline. Afterwards, guests came in for a seated dinner where things really got going. With the help of ABC 7's Kathy Brock and a spirited auctioneer, guests got to bid on once in a lifetime auction items, like exclusive access to the Paris Air Show and the opportunity to play with the best at the RBC Heritage Golf Tournament.
The live auction raised over $50,000, and the appeal that followed pulled in $238,000.
Through the commitment of our Honorary Chair, Vice Chairs, sponsors and attendees’ generosity, we raised an incredible $1.25 million at this year's Dinner of Champions!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support the mission. We could not have had a more successful evening without you.
