Members of Chicago’s legal community gather each year to raise funds for Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth at its Spring Awards Dinner, which honors a prominent attorney with the Abraham Lincoln Marovitz Philanthropic Award. This year’s honoree is Illinois Secretary of State, Jesse White. The dinner also raises a significant amount of Lend-A-Hand’s annual budget. In 2019, the Spring Awards Dinner was a lively affair that had 400 guests and raised over $200,000.
