Join us for The Judy Baar Topinka Charitable Foundation’s inaugural, fundraising event to honor and remember one of Illinois’ own, Ms. Judy Baar Topinka. The night will be dedicated to all things “Judy.” She was a friend to many of us; a public servant for all of us. She was a journalist, legislator, constitutional office holder, animal lover, and mother. The night will showcase different aspects of her life and the awarding of the first annual “Judy Award”. The award acknowledges a person who embodies good government, ethics, civility, and love of heritage in his or her professional and personal life. The selection of the awardee is based on the decision of a committee of five, prominent Illinois citizens. The first “Judy Award” will be presented to retired State Senator Christine Radogno.
The night’s festivities will be overseen by WGN Radio’s very own Brian Noonan.
Tickets available by mail or online at https://judybaartopinka.eventbrite.com. We look forward to seeing you!
