The 6th Annual Special Olympics Illinois Inspire Greatness Gala was held this past weekend at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. This extraordinary event was the biggest gala to date in Illinois in terms of attendance. MAKE was honored to be a Vice-Chair for the event and enjoyed the opportunity to celebrate with the inspirational athletes that brought us all together, their families, and our special guests from Healthcare Service Corporation.
Karen Atwood, President of Blue Cross Blue Shield Illinois, was the chair at this year’s event. In addition to her extensive role at BCBS, she took the time to lead us in paying tribute to Special Olympics. We’d like to give a special thank you to Karen for taking the time to MAKE the difference and to Blue Cross Blue Shield of IL for playing such a major role in the Special Olympics movement.
