    The annual Day at the Races event will be held on Friday, August 11 at Arlington International Racecourse. Attend this networking event for live horse racing, food, prizes, contests, and more. This is BOMA's hottest summer event - you don't want to miss it! 

    In order to keep this well-attended event fun and exciting for all attendees, we are asking for your support with two items during the event:

    1. Ticket Auction: We are in need of sporting event tickets, theater tickets, $100 gift cards, gift items, or monetary donations (which will be used to purchase items for the auction). One hundred percent of the proceeds of the Ticket Auction will go to our 2017 charity: CASA of DuPage County.  
       
    2. Second Chance Sweepstakes: The Second Chance Sweepstakes allows attendees to submit their non-winning betting vouchers into a drawing for a chance to win a prize. Prizes with a value of $25 are needed. These can be gift cards, logo items, or anything you can think of! Remember to attach your business card to each one so the recipient knows who donated them.

    To donate, contact Linda Hallberg with the quantity and the description of the item(s). 

    Please act now! The deadline to submit Ticket Auction or Second Chance Sweepstakes items is Wednesday, August 2. Your donations will be gratefully acknowledged both the day of the event and in our publications.

    The Awards Committee met earlier this week to review essay submissions for the 2017 BOMA International EXPO Full-Ride Giveaway. While each of the candidates were certainly deserving and would represent BOMA/Suburban Chicago well, the winning candidate displayed his zest and enthusiasm for learning while applying that excitement to the day-to-day management of his building. 

    The winner of the Full-Ride Giveaway contest is Tom Noonan, Chief Engineer with Millbrook Properties. Tom will be going to Nashville in June!
