ATG Celebrates its Top-Issuing Members

2011 Top Member Events in St. Louis and Chicago

Top-issuing members from 2010 had their choice of two events in their honor: Dinner and a Musical in May, or Dinner and a Museum in July! The May event was held in St. Louis at the Fabulous Fox Theater. Members and their guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and the smash Broadway hit, "Jersey Boys." The July event was in Chicago at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Members and their guests were treated to a beautiful summer evening of music, cocktails, and dinner in the Sculpture Garden Terrace. Congratulations to all our top members!
