The annual party of the summer—Taste of the Great Lakes—will take place at the Columbia Yacht Club from 6 to 9 p.m., June 23, on Chicago’s lakefront. The Alliance for the Great Lakes will bring together local restaurants, breweries and supporters for an evening of food, spirits and entertainment aboard a fabulous, 372-foot yacht anchored in the harbor.

      “There’s nothing more precious than protecting our Great Lakes,” says Joel Brammeier, president and CEO of the Alliance for the Great Lakes. “I’m looking forward to celebrating with hundreds of people that are joining us in our commitment to keep our water clean and protected for generations to come.” Proceeds from the event support the Alliance’s mission of implementing policy, education and local outreach efforts to promote healthy Great Lakes water for people and wildlife.
