This Year’s Event

We gather together each December at our Annual Meeting to celebrate our year’s accomplishments and envision our future.


This year, Chief Executive Officer Tim McCormick will engage in a dialogue with long-time SOS Illinois friend and supporter, Kathi Buck, on the unique history of SOS Illinois. Following the dialogue, Board President Don Biernacki will share highlights and accomplishments from 2017 before being joined by Juan Gabriel Moreno, President of JGMA, to present on our visions for a new community center at Roosevelt Square Village.

Additionally, SOS Children’s Villages Illinois will take time to show gratitude for the support of our staff, donors, corporate partners, and community leaders. We are proud to recognize a number of individuals who have gone above and beyond to help our organization serve children and families throughout 2017.
