We hope you will make PILI part of your end-of-year festivities! You can get your tickets now for the Annual Awards Luncheon on December 5th. We will be featuring our fantastic award recipients: Adam Gross, Reena Bajowala, Katten Muchin Rosenman and Attorney General Lisa Madigan. 

If you can't make it to the event, you can still participate through our Giving Tuesday "PILI in One Word" Campaign and helping us reach our $20,000 fundraising goal.

And we would be remiss if we didn't use this time of thanksgiving to thank all those who have made it such an amazing year at PILI, including our sponsors, donors, program participants and all of you!

As always, we hope you stay in touch through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube.

Sincerely,
