The Better Government Association is celebrating its 95th Anniversary! Please join us to honor another year of good government work at the 2018 Annual Luncheon on October 16th.

The fall luncheon has raised a record-breaking $2 million for the nonprofit, nonpartisan investigative reporting and public policy advocacy organization. This marks a new milestone as the largest amount raised for a civic luncheon in Chicago history.

At the event, BGA’s new President & CEO, veteran journalist David Greising, will be introduced.

Former President & CEO, Andy Shaw, will interview featured guests: Judy Woodruff, host of the PBS NewsHour, and her husband, Bloomberg analyst and former Wall Street Journal editor Albert Hunt.

First Amendment advocate Christie Hefner will be awarded the Daniel L. Goodwin Watchdog Award for her invaluable BGA support and remarkable civic contributions.
