This year marks the 50th anniversary that Chicago has been supporting the families of fallen first responders. The 100-club dinner was hosted at Maple and Ash in the Gold Coast. Guests included Federal, state, county and local officers, firefighters and EMS professionals stationed in and working out of Cook and Lake Counties. Throughout the evening, small gourmet bites and cocktails were provided to guests on the reinvented third floor space. It is this organization that makes a difference to the families that have lost a loved one. What a night to commemorate the five decades of service that have been completed.
