It's time once again for PCC's Annual DinnerThis year, we're doing things a little differently. Prices have gone up across the board, and the Annual Dinner planning has not been immune. The PCC Board has decided that if we want to broaden the tent and have the Dinner be more accessible to all (i.e., more affordable), something would need to change.

So expect a different format, but the same energy, spirit, and deliciousness you've come to expect. Maybe even better!

 But to help with that effort, the club is looking for generous people of Tiger Spirit to be Dinner Sponsors. Please CLICK BELOW to show your support! The more generous we all are up front, the more inclusive the dinner can be for all Chicagoland Tigers! 

The Dinner this year will be held on Monday, April 29, 2024 at the same venue as last year: Recess and the historic landmark City Hall.

We are also very excited to announce the keynote speaker this year will be the esteemed John W. Rogers Jr. '80 in conversation with the incredible Jason Tyler '93 P22 P27. As native Chicagoans, their discussion will focus on their mutual dedication to being "In the Service of Chicago".

  • Rogers-ad240429John W. Rogers Jr. '80

    John W. Rogers Jr. is the founder, chairman, and co-CEO of Ariel Investments, LLC, the largest minority-run mutual fund firm in the United States. John’s passion for investing began at age 12 when his father began buying him stocks as Christmas and birthday gifts. His interest in equities grew at Princeton University, where he majored in economics, and over the two-plus years he worked as a stockbroker for William Blair & Company, LLC. In 1983, John founded Ariel to focus on patient, value investing within small- and medium-sized companies. While Ariel's research capabilities have since expanded across the globe, his patient approach still anchors the firm today.
        John is active civically and professionally based on his belief that these engagements make him a better leader and a better investor. Beyond Ariel, he is a member of the board of directors of NIKE, The New York Times Company, Ryan Specialty Group Holdings and the Obama Foundation. John also serves as Vice Chair of the board of trustees of The University of Chicago.

         John is committed to a number of philanthropic endeavors. He founded Ariel Community Academy (ACA) in 1996, a public school in Chicago. ACA incorporates an immersive and innovative financial literacy program with an emphasis on investing. He also created the John W. Rogers, Jr. Internship Program in Finance (JWR) at the University of Chicago to connect exceptional students from underrepresented backgrounds with internship opportunities in the investment offices of non-profit foundations and endowments. Over 20 years ago, he co-founded the Black Corporate Directors Conference to foster corporate DEI; develop best practices; and encourage directors to promote the civil rights agenda in the boardroom. The conference’s call to action focuses on the “Three Ps”: People, Purchasing and Philanthropy.

         In 2008, John was awarded Princeton University’s highest honor, the Woodrow Wilson Award, presented each year to the alumnus or alumna whose career embodies a commitment to national service. John received an AB in economics from Princeton University, where he was also captain of the varsity basketball team.
