Union League Club of Chicago

POSTPONED TO SPRING 2021

Check back for more details
As the world’s first service club, our legacy is service: Service Above Self. We believe that every Rotarian and every non-Rotarian has the ability to change lives, whether by promoting social justice, by helping people secure desperately needed health care, food and shelter, or by protecting people from violence or abuse. Rotary honors women who exemplify the principle of service on which Rotary has been built. Each of the Rotary honorees has changed lives for the better.
