• Lawyers for the Creative Arts Benefit Luncheon

    Annual Benefit Luncheon

    Every year, more than 350 business people, attorneys, and artists gather at LCA’s Benefit Luncheon to celebrate the arts in Chicago. 

    This year’s event features improv comedy by The Second City, inspiring discussions with awardees Tony Karman of Expo Chicago, and D’Arcy Stuart of Second City, and a special appearance by Aaron Freeman of National Public Radio. 

    And we’re proud to be honoring attorney Barry Irwin and the law firm of Leavens, Strand & Glover, LLC.

    Please join us on October 27th for this Celebration of the Arts!
