We are honored to invite you to the 2019 KID Best Friend Award Night

The 2019 KID Best Friend Award Night promises to be a night to remember. We will be celebrating on Tuesday, April 30 at Galleria Marchetti from 6:00 – 9:00 PM.

This year, KID is honored to present our KID’s Best Friend Award to extraordinary parent advocates, Nicole and Jonathan Hughes, and Morgan and Bode Miller.

On June 10, 2018, three-year old Levi Hughes slipped away from his family for only a moment and drowned in an outdoor pool in seconds. That same day, 19-month old Emmy Miller walked through a back door at a family friend's house and fell into the pool and drowned. Emmy was in the pool for less than a minute.

Together, in honor of their children, the Hughes and Miller families have devoted their efforts to educating the public about pool safety and the dangers of water hazards by sharing life-saving resources. KID is proud to honor Nicole & Jonathan, and Morgan & Bode for their advocacy in the midst of grief to help keep other children safe.

This event is KID’s premier fundraiser and offers guests an exciting experience; the opportunity to sample the culinary delights from Chicago’s finest chefs. This year's chef's include the BOKA Restaurant Group, Bub City, Cake Chicago, Lettuce Entertain You restaurants, and Revolution Brewing.

Lisa Parker, NBC Chicago Consumer Investigative Reporter will be the Emcee with Amy Kelly as auctioneer. As part of the event there will be a live auction along with a raffle drawing for five amazing baskets. Watch for updates on the great prizes soon. Music provided by Jones College Prep High School Jazz Band.

We would love to have you join us.
