We gather together each December at our Annual Meeting to celebrate our year’s accomplishments and envision our future.
This year, we will pay special acknowledgment to Don Biernacki for his years of service as the President of the Board of Directors at SOS Children’s Villages Illinois. Together with our staff, family of supporters, and special guests, we will honor the legacy Don has created in our community; a lasting impression that has greatly impacted the lives of each child and family we serve. Don will serve as this year’s keynote speaker, offering reflections and wisdom from his time in leadership at SOS Illinois.
Additionally, we 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 2018.
