Thank you to all that came to Resilience: Building Our Community


Resilience: Building Our Community was a smashing success for Centro Romero this year.  Hosted by Telemundo’s Karla Leal, the evening included reception, silent auction, dinner, and a keynote speech by Illinois State Senator Daniel Biss. Centro Romero’s prestigious Monsignor Romero Award was presented to Father Manuel Dorantes for his incredible work with the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, and our Community Leadership Award was presented to Alma Rodriguez, the Program Director for The Chicago Community Trust.

Centro Romero would also like to acknowledge and give gratitude to our Honorary Host Committee co-chairs Hon. Patrick O’Connor (40th Ward Alderman), Hon. Joe Moore (49th Ward Alderman) and Hon. Harry Osterman (48th Ward Alderman).

We are very grateful for all of our sponsors for this year’s event including Comcast, Wintrust Financial, Chicago Tribune, Hoy, Hughes Socol Piers Resnick & Dym Ltd., ComEd, Grupo REU, Charles Wintersteen and Associates, Legacy Healthcare, Swedish Covenant Hospital, Senator Heather Steans and Turner Acceptance Corp.  Centro Romero had a successful event this year and we hope everyone else enjoyed the evening.  See you next year!
