The Better Makers section of our print magazine features photos of guests and honorees from some of the top fundraisers across Chicagoland. We highlight these events in order to shed light on all of the hard work the people of Chicago and the North Shore are doing to raise awareness around important causes and make a difference in the lives of others.
