Scouting continues to make a difference in the lives of youth and impact our communities. On September 23, 2017, we will once again gather to celebrate Scouting, our community and our newest Distinguished Citizen.
You are invited to our 45th Annual Distinguished Citizen Award Gala on September 23, 2017 at 6:00pm. This is a social event, held in a unique venue, located at the Illinois Aviation Academy hangar, filled with food, drinks, music, auctions, and more.
The honoree for 2017 is Steve Davis, President of the Will Group, located in Wheaton, IL. His remarkable life experiences and his impact in our community, truly make him worthy of this honor. Past recipients of the Distinguished Citizen Award have included Mae and John Calamos (Calamos Investments), Mayor A. George Pradel (Naperville), and Jerry Rich (Rich Harvest Farms).
This event in September will be attended by more than 200 people, helping to raise over $100,000 for Scouting. As a member of the council executive board, please mark your calendar to attend. For those of you that have the ability to sponsor our event through your place of business, this is a great opportunity to utilize your marketing dollars to support Scouting’s wonderful outdoor education programs. If not, I am certain your spouse or significant other would enjoy a fun evening out on the town.
