Spearheaded by prominent civic leaders Lynn Lockwood  Murphy, Elizabeth O’Connor Cole, and Sonny Garg, who serve on CCT’s board, Lunch and Learn seeks to inspire Chicagoland parents. This event is both entertaining and informative, as attendees will learn about CCT, as well as experience a guest lecture from a renowned public speaker. Proceeds benefit Chicago Children’s Theatre.
