Dear ISOC Members and Friends of the Society,

2020 was a year like no other, but happily, 2021 is off to a much better start and I know you share my hope that we’ll be able to gather again to celebrate all things Hoosier in December of this year.

I am delighted to share with you that planning for this year’s gala and after-party are well underway and each is shaping up to be quite special. Our 2021 Hoosier of the Year will be different than in past years and this December, we will honor the many Hoosiers from across our great state who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in their care of COVID-19 patients. The many sacrifices and unselfish care provided by first responders of all types – police officers, fire fighters, EMTs, nurses, doctors, or any other individual with a compelling story of courage – will be honored and we need your help in identifying them. Please go to our website: indianasocietyofchicago.org to nominate your Hoosiers of Year!

We are also happy to report that we will celebrate Purdue University as our honored institution of higher education and will recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of our Boilermakers in this, their 152nd year. Boiler Up!

While we are ahead in our planning for what is certain to be a fun and engaging evening, we need your help in the meantime. First, please nominate first responders you may know of and, second, but of equal importance, please consider making a donation that will be given in direct support of scholarships to deserving Hoosier students who are currently enrolled in health-related degree programs in Indiana’s colleges and universities.

With your continued support of the Indiana Society of Chicago and your financial commitment to help fund scholarships for deserving students, 2021 promises to be an extraordinary year. On behalf of the Board of Directors and Trustees, thank you! We look forward to celebrating with you on December 4th.

Sincerely,

Julie K. Griffith
Indiana Society of Chicago Foundation, President
