Chicago-area civic, business and philanthropic leaders will celebrate the culmination of 2020 support for Metropolitan Family Services at Mpower the Night, an engaging evening to empower and support our neighbors.

Mpower the Night will feature a unique and important dialogue, exploring the realities of violence prevention and the reasons to feel hopeful about peace in Chicago. We’ll hear from those directly involved in the conflicts our city faces about what is needed to establish and maintain peace.

Proceeds support Metropolitan’s programs and services, which empower more than 95,000 families and individuals to learn, earn, heal and thrive.

Honoring this year’s Legacy Awardee

Northern Trust will be honored with the Legacy Award, to be accepted by Michael G. O’Grady, Chairman, President and CEO of Northern Trust.
