Our 42nd Annual Luncheon is the premier gathering of those involved in the social impact sector in Illinois. Although our organization has hosted the Luncheon for 42 years, this is our first year hosting it as Forefront.

At the Luncheon, we will honor Donald A. Cooke's many contributions to both the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors in Chicago. Don is currently Senior Vice President of Philanthropy at the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and Chair of Forefront's Board of Directors.

Don will be joined by world-renowned musician — and friend — Yo-Yo Ma, the Judson & Joyce Green Creative Consultant at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, to discuss how both have experienced professional "reinventions" and kept their work fresh and relevant.

The Luncheon is open to all, regardless of Membership in Forefront.
