On Tuesday, October 7th, RNBC celebrated its 18th Annual Awards Dinner at the Four Seasons Chicago, honoring those who have made a significant difference in the lives of children and adolescents with brain-based learning challenges. Over $600,000 was raised in support of education, outreach, research, scholarships and to sustaining the excellence of RNBC. Thank you to all of our generous donors, colleagues and friends who made the event a success!
We saluted three of RNBC’s extraordinary partners. The Big Shoulders Fund was honored with the Game Changer Award which is given to an individual or organization that envisions a creative way to profoundly improve the lives of children and works tirelessly to turn that vision into reality. The Creating the Future Award highlights the accomplishments of an individual or organization whose efforts have made a material difference in the lives of children. This year the Robert R. McCormick Foundation received the Creating the Future Award. Pamela Adelman, Executive Director Emerita of Hyde Park Day School was presented with the Pearl H. Rieger Award. This award pays tribute to an individual or institution that, through a significant professional contribution to the field, has made a profound difference in the lives of children, especially those with neurobehavioral issues.
