The Salvation Army Annual Civic Luncheon

Featuring Keynote Speaker: Laura W. Bush

The Salvation Army 2019 Civic Luncheon

Featuring Keynote Speaker: Laura W. Bush

This event is in celebration of The Salvation Army’s programs and services, and honors the recipients of The Salvation Army’s prestigious William Booth Award and “Others” award. Honorees are recognized on an annual basis because they exemplify the spirit of our founder, William Booth, by putting others first.

We are pleased to honor Craig and Janet Duchossois with The William Booth and  Antunovich & Associates and Bulley & Andrews for “The Others” award at the 2019 event.



The money we raised at the annual Civic Luncheon supports our work every day. Our officers, staff and volunteers battle homelessness, hunger, substance use disorders, violence, human trafficking, hopelessness and more throughout the Chicagoland area every day.

We do this because The Fight is Now.
