Legendary Landmarks Celebration

2020 Legendary Landmarks Celebration

Landmarks Illinois held its 15th annual Legendary Landmarks Celebration March 5, 2020, at the Hilton Chicago. The evening honored 2020 Legendary Landmarks Timuel D. Black Jr., Joseph P. Gromacki and Matthew & Daniel Walsh of The Walsh Group.

Guests at the annual event also helped raise $840,000 for Landmarks Illinois – $135,000 of which came directly from the evening’s paddle raise fundraiser! This financial support provides critical funding for Landmarks Illinois’ advocacy programs that make it possible for us to help people all across the state save the historic and special places in their communities.

Since 2006, Landmarks Illinois has honored more than 40 individuals, families and corporations at its annual fundraiser, the Legendary Landmarks Celebration. The Legendary Landmarks Celebration is an inspiring evening full of festivities, networking and tributes to our city’s Legendary Landmarks.
