Creating A Winning City

The Team. The Town. The Region.

Please join Metropolitan Planning Council for an inspiring conversation between Tom Ricketts, Executive Chairman of the Chicago Cubs, and Natalie Moore, WBEZ’s South Side Reporter, on the team’s extraordinary journey and the turnaround lessons that we can apply to Chicago’s pressing problems.

During the Luncheon, MPC will recognize one of Chicago’s leading corporate citizens John A. Canning, Jr., Chairman of Madison Dearborn Partners, LLC, with the 2017 Champion Fighter Award. We honor him for his extraordinary civic contributions to the Chicago region through his transformative leadership and philanthropy.
