On Thursday, November 8, 2012, ESC hosted our 2012 Celebration of Service - our annual tribute luncheon to our volunteers who lend their time and talent to help metropolitan Chicago nonprofits and the people they serve.
The excitement in the room was palpable as over 300 ESC volunteers, Board members, supporters, nonprofit and public agency clients, and guests gathered for the champagne reception, silent and live auction, luncheon and awards event. Torey Malatia, President & CEO of Chicago Public Media, was the keynote speaker, uplifting the crowd with his message from an informed public media perspective about the value and voice of nonprofits and their importance to our communities.
