On October 22, 2015, over 300 guests came together for Casa Central’s Annual Awards Dinner to celebrate the agency’s vision of a healthier, stronger Chicago. This year the Annual Awards Dinner sought to “imagine change, invest in opportunities, and impact lives.” President & CEO of ComEd, Anne Pramaggiore, served as the dinner chair. During the evening’s event, the agency honored Wrigley Company and Richard M. Jaffe, Chairman of Oil-Dri Corporation of America, for their invaluable dedication to Casa Central.
Located at the recently opened Loews Chicago Hotel, the night was a successful celebration, helping to strengthen Casa Central’s unique programming and ensure that low-income families and individuals have access to comprehensive social services. Thank you again to all of our sponsors and guests!
