On February 27, the Les Turner ALS Foundation will present Madeleine and Joe Glossberg with the "Hope Through Caring" award and Joan and Paul Rubschlager with the “Visionary Award” at the Hope Through Caring Gala at The Loews Hotel in Chicago.
The Glossbergs have supported every Hope Through Caring Gala since its inception in 1988 and have served as members of the Gala committee numerous times. As founder and CEO of Condit Associates, Madeleine works with leading corporations and boards of directors on the key fundamental issues that fuel sustainable growth and good governance. Joe is a senior partner and member of the executive committee at investment-counseling firm of Gofen and Glossberg, L.L.C. Joe is a trustee board member of the University of Pennsylvania and Knox College, and both he and Madeleine are deeply committed to charitable and civic causes, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Jazz Institute of Chicago, The Merit School of Music and the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, just to name a few.
Joan and Paul Rubschlager recently sold their family business, Rubschlager Baking Corporation, founded in 1913. The couple has been active supporters of the Les Turner ALS Foundation since the 1980’s, after Paul lost his father to ALS in 1975. In recognition of the groundbreaking work being performed at the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine, the Rubschlagers made a $2 million gift to the endowment at the Center. The couple generously supports other nonprofit organizations, including the American Heart Association and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Phil Schwarz, ABC7 meteorologist, will host the event. The evening will feature a balloon raffle, paddle raise, dinner and dancing. Music will be provided by The Chicago Players.
