IlliniDads Support Chicago Illini of the Year Annual Gala

IlliniDads with Chancellor Jones at the Chicago Illini of the Year Annual Gala

The IlliniDads were well represented at the Annual Chicago Illini of the Year Awards Gala hosted by the University of Illinois Alumni Association and the Chicago Illini Club.

The honorees were gracious and amazingly accomplished. Congratulations to the three award recipients:

Rebecca A. Snyders Darr, ’90 LAS
Chief Executive Officer, WINGS

Mary Kay Kretch Haben, ’77 BUS
Retired President, North America at Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company

Judge James F. Holderman Jr., ’68 ACES, JD ’71
Retired Chief Judge, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois

A common theme among all three recipients was the lifelong relationships formed while they were completing their studies at the University of Illinois. All had heartwarming stories of bonds formed that carried over to their personal, professional and philanthropic lives, including to the altar, as all were married to Illini grads.

And the Dads Association was there from the beginning for all of their families.
