This year’s benefit will be an interactive experience, showcasing the many resources and services HACC provides to the hundreds of people that come in and out of HACC’s doors every day.

Because we know it takes an individual to catalyze change and a community to create a movement, we will honor the accomplishments of community leaders with our 4 Impact Awards:

  • Visionary of the Year
  • HACC Spirit
  • Outstanding Community Partner
  • Dedicated Service

And it is with great pleasure that we announce Maria Hadden, Chicago’s newly elected 49th Ward Alderwoman, as our recipient of the Visionary of the Year award! Hadden’s devotion to Chicago’s residents through her work to improve public education, affordable housing, health and safety, and economic stability, while centering the voices of the communities she serves is remarkable!

We are looking forward to an evening with neighbors, friends, supporters and partners to celebrate the legacy and future of community impact.
