On November 10, the eve of Veterans Day, Wintrust hosted an event in the Grand Banking Hall of the Wintrust Building, at 231 South LaSalle Street, to highlight local veterans. The event was attended by nearly 500 guests, including a handful of honored vets who served in World War II, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Those in attendance heard the stories of the featured veterans and then mingled over drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
