9th Annual Business Society Luncheon

On November 15th we welcomed a record crowd of almost 350 alumni, students, parents (past/present), and friends of Saint Ignatius to the Union League Club. Thank you to our sponsors and table hosts for helping to fill the room. We hope you all enjoyed the opportunity to connect with other Ignatians in a variety of fields and careers. Our four awardees shared many takeaways with us but what shined through most in their remarks was the importance of family and need for continuous innovation. Thank you for being a part of our efforts to build a strong and impactful business community at Saint Ignatius. See below for more ways to get involved.
