Thank you for making SEARCH TRAILBLAZERS 2016 a true success!

2016 Event

Thank you so much to everyone who attended and supported SEARCH TRAILBLAZERS 2016! We were thrilled to host nearly 300 guests for an elegant evening reception on May 19th, 2016 at Galleria Marchetti in Chicago. Attendees enjoyed a live program emceed by Rob Johnson of CBS 2 Chicago as well as delicious food stations, desserts and a fantastic silent auction. See photos from the event here!

The event honored Trinita Logue, Founder of IFF, with the 2016 Trailblazer Award for her many years of leadership in the nonprofit community and also for IFF’s 20 year partnership with Search. Among other outcomes, that partnership created five new homes for individuals with disabilities. During the live program, we premiered a special video that shows the impact of “Leading The Way Home” through community living. The video features the story of Marcia, one of the 180 individuals served through our Supported Living Program, and her sister Maxine. Take a moment to watch the video now!

We are thrilled to announce that thanks to the support of our stakeholders, SEARCH TRAILBLAZERS raised $120,000! This vital support will be invested back into Search’s programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Given the current budget crisis in Illinois this support is more important than ever and will be used to sustain Search’s innovative services in the year ahead.

A big thank you to everyone who made SEARCH TRAILBLAZERS a true success!
