Good Neighbor Awards

The Good Neighbor Awards were created to encourage rehabilitation and redevelopment in Chicago’s north side neighborhoods and to showcase ground-breaking rehabs and development in the Chicago metropolitan area. The award has also been given for salvaging historical properties, rescuing architecturally significant buildings from the wrecking ball, and tackling stigmatized properties. The Good Neighbor Awards recognize properties that offer unique amenities and bonus facilities, often strengthening community pride. Developers that take special care to “fit in” with the neighborhood also qualify for Good Neighbor Awards. This highly anticipated event draws approximately 250 attendees.

Golf Outing

The first Annual C.A.R. Golf Classic was held in 1907. This historic event sells out very quickly and typically hosts more than 200 golfers and attendees. Members and sponsors are encouraged to sign up early. Net proceeds from raffle ticket sales, auctions, etc. benefit a designated charity. Golf packages include golf, cart, food and beverages for the day and the cocktail reception. The 2014 Golf Classic has not been scheduled yet.
