The first winner of the Chicago Humane Awards is you - if you attend the Found Chicago Humane Awards on January 22.
That's because you are then supporting an organization devoted to saving lives of homeless animals, many that have "issues," which other facilities will not take on. But this is what Found Chicago does.
The honorees are Mark Buerhle of the Chicago White Sox and his wife Jamie; 47th ward Alderman Gene Schulter and from the Animal Ark Veterinary Clinic, Dr. Derrek Landini and his wife Jennifer.
The emcee is Janet Davies of 190 North and WLS-TV. Nancy Faust, organist for the Chicago White will perform.
Tickets are $125, and will undoubtedly sell out - so now is the time.
The event is at 7 p.m. at 4130 N. Rockwell, Chicago. Food and drink included. I feel awful that I can not attend since I have a connection to so many being honored. My congratulations to Found Chicago, and to the honorees.
