Our Latest Announcement

To our great friends and supporters who spent last Sunday afternoon with us at The Castle in Downtown Chicago, thank you.

While enjoying a marvelous meal prepared by the Davino family at Mista restaurant, you witnessed another great gathering of some of Chicagoland's most talented musicians and singers. Most importantly, you helped us honor a fine man, educator, war veteran and sport icon, Johnny Bach. Johnny hlped coach the Chicago Bulls to 6 NBA championships. Always in the background and always a gentleman, his quiet presence leant itself to the molding of such great basketball stars as Michael Jordan and ScottPippen both and and off the court.

We were quite proud to be blessed with the words of another Chicago icon, Rev. George Clements, who led us in unique prayer as the program began.

We hope you enjoyed the afternoon as much as we enjoyed producing it.

Watch for our next event after the first of the new year. Tell your friends, bring your friends and stay our friends.

Lou Rago

Have a great Thanksgiving, a blessed Christmas and holiday season and a safe, healthy new year.
