The Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare Board of Governors’ 62nd Annual Fall Benefit Dinner will take place on Wednesday, November 14 at Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace. This year’s featured speaker is Tom Ricketts.
Ricketts is the Chairman of the Chicago Cubs and a lifelong fan of the team. In 2009, he led his family’s acquisition of the team from the Chicago Tribune Company. When Tom and his family were introduced as the new owners of the Chicago Cubs, he outlined three goals for the organization: win the World Series; preserve and improve Wrigley Field for future generations, and be good neighbors that give back to the city and neighborhood.
The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a complimentary cocktail reception, dinner at 7:30 p.m. and the program to follow. The 62nd Annual Fall Benefit Dinner is sponsored by Suburban Bank & Trust and Superior Ambulance.
Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare’s goal, like Ricketts, is to be a good neighbor and give back to the community. Proceeds from the event will benefit the new Elmhurst Memorial Addison Health Center. Designed with the comfort of our patients and families in mind, the Addison Health Center offers access to a variety of physicians as well as a full range of outpatient health care services in a welcoming environment. The 55,000 square foot, three-story medical building includes services and specialists in internal medicine, family practice, pulmonary, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, dentistry, podiatry, gastroenterology, immediate care, occupational health, clinical laboratory and radiology.
