The history-making accomplishments of the Apollo 8 mission were celebrated by 700 guests at this 38th annual event, held October 6. Members of the Apollo 8 crew — Colonel Frank Borman, James Lovell and Major General Bill Anders — were honored, and more than $2 million was raised for the Museum’s inspirational educational programs and exhibits. The Ball was co-chaired by Laura and George Bilicic, Denise Daydan and Christopher Lorenzen. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and first lady Amy Rule served as honorary co-chairs.
