Chicago Young Leaders Winter Gathering 2016

On Thursday January 21, 2016, Chicago’s American Ireland Fund Young Leaders and guests gathered at C Chicago,  the city’s new elegant seafood restaurant, located in the bustling River North area.  Matt Moore and David Flom, the proprietors, were the hosts of this lovely evening.

Co-Chair of the Regional Advisory Board, Devon Bruce, welcomed the group and spoke about the Fund and its vital impact on Ireland.

The Young Leaders’ Chair, Bridget Monahan and Co-Chair, Colleen Nolan, gave an update on the recently concluded Young Leaders Summit YLS5 2016.

This was also the kick off for the Young Leaders’ Green Gala which will be held March 5, 2016 at the top of the city’s iconic Willis Tower. This is the Young Leaders’ signature event of the year.

Several guests, who were not already members, joined the Young Leaders and look forward to attending many fun, future gatherings while supporting the philanthropic work of the Ireland Funds.
