Look for your pledge card and more information in your mailbox today. As an incentive to participate in the campaign, we are giving away several prizes, including a Grand Prize of two round-trip train tickets to Chicago, compliments of Amtrak, along with dinner in the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the Hancock Building. To enter, simply turn in your pledge card before or during the campaign’s kickoff reception.
