With Gov. Pat Quinn, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, state Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka and Senate President John Cullerton leading the way, last weekend’s Equality Illinois Tribute Reception to the people who made the freedom to marry a reality in Illinois was a great success.
Photographer Christine Grost captured the joy of the participants at the champagne brunch and the magical look of the JW Marriott Burnham Ballroom. More than 300 pictures of the event, the speakers and the guests are available to review and for purchase.
