UC alumni and friends in the Chicago area have worked very diligently to raise support for their beloved alma mater. In April, Ann Taylor hosted a dinner meeting for 30 members of the close-knit Chicagoans for Cincy group at the offices of Locke Lord. Guests from the UC Foundation, Bill Mulvihill and Jill Nelson, reported that the Proudly Cincinnati Capital Campaign has reached $890,213,656 towards its $1 billion goal...exciting news for all! Bob Fealy, Co-Chair of the Proudly Cincinnati Capital Campaign and Chair of Chicagoans for Cincy, also noted that the Chicago group has raised $7,708,000 towards its $10 million goal.
Thanks to Tom Gruenwald for entertaining the group and at the same time teaching them a little bit about physics. Tom’s presentation “Expedition to Greenland - Destination Arctic Circle”, included photographs of the magnificent glaciers and stunning scenery taken during his trip to Thule, Greenland during a solar eclipse in 2008. These Chicagoans truly enjoy gathering to network and celebrate their successes in both their personal and professional lives. If you live in the Chicago area and would like to get involved with this energetic group, please contact Jill Nelson, at the UC Foundation. She'd love to hear from you!
