Chicagoans of the Year 2010

Our six honorees include an orthopedic surgeon, a crusading mom, a preservationist, a hockey baron, an educator, and a woman who helps recovering addicts

Our six Chicagoans of the Year for 2010 share a praiseworthy trait with the 121 honorees who preceded them over the last 17 years. An educator, a sportsman, a preservationist, an orthopedic surgeon, a mother searching for a cure, and a woman offering shelter from the storm—they are all passionate about revitalizing some aspect of our city. At a January luncheon at the Four Seasons, sponsored in part by American Airlines, Chicago will celebrate the achievements of these extraordinary people and reward each of them with a $1,000 donation from the Chicago Tribune Foundation for the charity of their choice.
