Join us for the 17th annual William C. Staszak Award Dinner and Benefit, Saturday April 30, honoring Oak Park entrepreneur, developer and philanthropist Mary Jo Schuler.

It’s always a good time! The evening begins at 6 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction. The silent auction will close at 7:30 p.m. when we move to a lovely, seated dinner, short award presentation, and live auction with emcee Lynda Shadrake — actress, teacher and improv comedienne. Both silent and live auctions will include many new, unique items including parties with renowned chefs, sports tickets, and exciting trips.

Tickets will sell for $125 each, with tables of 10 for $1,250. We also have sponsorship and advertising opportunities. Invitations are being mailed this week and online reservations will be available on March 21. For more information, call (708) 524-3023 or email
