The 5th annual Make Room for Debate luncheon was a great success!
Thanks to the nearly 300 business people, community leaders and friends of debate who gathered on June 13, 2016 at the Standard Club to celebrate the Chicago Debate Commission and raise critical funding to support debate programming in Chicago Public Schools.
The 5th annual Make Room for Debate luncheon was led by Event Chair David Nadig, Senior Vice President of Allstate Insurance Company, with the support of the Honorary Committee and Benefit Committee. The event honored Terry Mazany, President & CEO of the Chicago Community Trust, as our 2016 Champion of Debate. Also at the event, three Chicago Debate League students shared their accounts of the powerful impact of debate on their lives.
