Please join us on Thursday, May 2nd for SEARCH TRAILBLAZERS 2019: Celebrating Community Connections at Rockwell on the River in Chicago! This exciting evening will celebrate Search, Inc.’s efforts to further the inclusion of people with disabilities in the community and will honor our champions in this work.

Guests will enjoy cocktails, fun foods, delicious desserts, awards, and a silent auction. Located in a beautiful riverfront setting, Rockwell on the River is Chicago’s newest premier destination and will delight and surprise audiences the moment they arrive.

Search is thrilled to honor Mariano’s, Miller Cooper & Co., Ltd, and Pace Suburban Bus, with the 2019 Trailblazer Award.

Mariano’s is a Chicagoland leader in promoting inclusive employment strategies. Together, Mariano’s and Search have collaborated on job coaching and supportive employment services across six stores, in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Miller Cooper & Co. has partnered with Search for more than a decade to advance the agency’s mission. The accounting firm also played an instrumental role in bringing together Search and Glenkirk to form the Keystone Alliance, which has been essential to ensuring the long-term sustainability of both organizations.

Pace has partnered with Search Inc. to facilitate Hop on the Bus to Independence Workshops for over 5,000 students and their supporters, empowering individuals with disabilities to access their communities with greater independence through fixed-route public transportation.

All proceeds from SEARCH TRAILBLAZERS 2019 will support the essential services of Search, Inc. Search is a community-based non-profit that empowers adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to achieve their full potential, accept a valued role in their community and lead rich, rewarding lives.
