“A Night of Stars” Annual Gala recognizes and honors our Community Stars for their outstanding achievements in community service. The Community Star Awards go to individuals, businesses, and organizations who have gone above and beyond the call of duty by volunteering time, talent and/or resources to the community; implement sustainable change for the benefit of our community; or leave an exceptional, lasting lifetime impression as someone others admire and respect. 

"A Night of Stars" was held on February 17, 2018, at Park Ridge Chamber member, Cafe La Cave in Des Plaines. Approximately 220 people attended the magical evening which included a champagne reception, passed hor d'oeuvres, a delicious four course dining experience, raffle prizes, and a silent auction. As the evening concluded, guests danced the night away to the tunes of Scream Blue.
