RIC Women's Board
Annual Fundraising Events
Although the names and faces have changed and gloves remain in the closet, the Women's Board has contributed by today's standards almost $50,000,000 to the Institute. Our annual International Antiques Fair Preview Party at the Merchandise Mart attracts guests from around the world. Our Medicine Ball sparks awareness of the Institute's groundbreaking initiatives.
Our founders donned those custom name tags, made those baloney sandwiches, and launched one of the finest Women's Boards in the country. Their successful drive to stamp "The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago" into the center of public awareness made them legends in their own time. Today's members remain ever grateful to those trailblazing women.
