A Salute to Those Who Make a Difference
Larry Yellen of FoxTV Chicago served as an engaging Master of Ceremonies for this year’s gala event. The evening began with a stirring entry by bagpipers and Secretary of State Jesse White presenting the flag. Jennifer Seppi again provided lovely patriotic and familiar songs for dining entertainment. And, one by one, the stars of the evening took their places in the spotlight.
