It’s not a reception, but bring a toy!
Monday, Dec 9, 2013
* The Illinois Chamber, Illinois Bankers Association and the Chicagoland Chamber are holding a fundraiser for a couple of state legislators next week. From their e-mail…
I’m already starting to get questions about my “reception.”
* Just to be clear, I’m not having a “reception.” I’m giving a speech to the City Club of Chicago, and it has nothing to do with that biz fundraiser, which will be in a different part of Maggiano’s.
* The occasion is the City Club’s second annual “Christmas with Rich Miller.” This time around, we’re asking people to bring toys and/or gift cards to the event. The toys should be appropriate for children ages 3-5. If you bring a gift card, please make sure the store is child appropriate.
The toys and gift cards will be donated to Lutheran Social Services of Illinois’ early childhood program. The group serves families in poor areas of Chicago.
* So, please bring a toy with you next Wednesday. And if you can’t make it, you can click here to donate to Lutheran Social Services of Illinois. Thanks!
And, yes, I’ll be reminding you of this again before the event, so you might as well donate today and get it over with.
