The evolving coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the nonprofit sector in ways none of us have ever encountered-including the transition of many National MS Society - Greater IL Market events to virtual events. To this end, we have created a unique twist on two of our most prominent events and are pleased to present,

The 2020 Virtual Benefit: Women on the Move Luncheon and Dinner of Champions


Honorary Chair Sara Harris, Honoree Teri Andresen  

The 2020 Virtual Benefit: Women on the Move Luncheon | Dinner of Champions is a premier fundraising event for our Greater Illinois Market raising over $500,000 to support those affected by MS and their families. The National MS Society stands to lose $60 million in vital funding due to this crisis - 1/3 of total projected revenue. That means services for people with MS are at stake. MS research is at stake. And vital advocacy is at stake.


We hope we are able to celebrate with you all virtually on Thursday, September 24th where the evening will be hosted by Tracy Butler from ABC 7 Chicago. In addition to our Honoree and Honorary Chair, it is our pleasure to have the Society's first ever 

Society Family Moment Featuring Paula Herrera and the Herrera Family.

Four Seasons Hotel Chicago announces Adorn Bar & Restaurant, a new concept in collaboration with James Beard award-winning chef Jonathon Sawyer. Returning to his hometown to open his first Chicago restaurant, Adorn will make its debut with the unveiling of the iconic hotel's trans-formative renovation on October 1, 2020. A destination where guests and locals can revel in cultural immersion with inspired food, drink, art and music, Adorn will celebrate international culinary creativity starring local ingredients and a decidedly Midwestern perspective that offers a taste of what gives Chicago its unique vibrancy. 

Adorn Bar & Restaurant is now taking dinner reservations for beginning October 1, 2020 with breakfast, lunch and brunch service to soon follow. The restaurant is located in the newly renovated Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, at 120 E Delaware Pl, Chicago, IL 60611.  Reservations are recommended and can be made on OpenTable.
