Annual Awards Luncheon


In 2024, our Annual Awards Luncheon will be held on Wednesday, December 11, 2024 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.

About the Event

PILI’s Annual Awards Luncheon brings together the Illinois legal community every year to celebrate the very best aspects of the legal profession: the generosity, expertise and commitment of the countless law students, recent graduates, lawyers and legal professionals, law firms, corporations and law schools who dedicate themselves to providing legal assistance and advocacy to those in need. This event is PILI’s largest annual fundraiser, providing critical support for our work across Illinois.


We will be offering several sponsorship opportunities and recognize event sponsors on all web and print material related to the event. Firm and corporate sponsorships start at $2,500 and all funds raised go towards PILI’s Programs. In 2023, there were 56 sponsors for this event, including 33 law firms, 10 corporations and 13 law schools. The initial deadline for sponsorship of this event is Wednesday, October 9, 2024.
