The scene: More than 325 guests convened in Harold Washington Library’s Winter Garden (400 S. State) April 30 to toast Anixter Center’s mission to help those with disabilities find meaningful jobs at this annual event, themed “Empowerment through Employment.”
The invite list: After a lively cocktail hour, Master of Ceremonies Marion Brooks and host David Doebler, both of WMAQ-Channel 5, kicked off the ceremony, which honored Comcast’s Matt Summy for his devotion to Anixter’s vision.
The bottom line: The event raised nearly $490,000 to continue to provide services for those with disabilities through 34 different programs and 35 locations across the greater Chicago area.
Splash was the media sponsor of this event.
