Chicago Consular Corps Ball

NL_July2010_AE_intro It was an honor to attend the Chicago Consular Corps Ball on June 2, held in the Hilton Chicago Grand Ballroom on South Michigan Avenue. The annual Ball honors the Chicago Consular Corps, representing about 80 countries, and is announced by invitation from Mayor Richard M. Daley and Maggie Daley, and Dean of Consular Corps Patricia Maza-Pittsford and Philip Pittsford.

This year for the first time the Ball was hosted by Chicago Sister Cities International (of which I co-chair the Moscow Committee), in honor of its 50th anniversary. This is an elegant evening of dining and dancing that I look forward to each year.
