About Tonight's Honorees

Bob and Rose Fealy were captivated by Chicago Children’s Choir from the moment our singers took the stage 12 years ago at Red Jacket Optional. The musical talent, poise and presence of the young singers performing inspired them to get to know CCC better.

Bob and Rose soon learned that thousands of young people across Chicago are brought together by a relatively small team of artists and administrators, meaningful programs and a powerful mission. They have been a part of the CCC family ever since.

Bob has served on the CCC Board of Directors since 2011 and remains on the Board following his four-year tenure as Chairman. Under Bob’s leadership, CCC has deepened its impact throughout Chicago and raised unprecedented levels of philanthropic support through the Raising Voices Campaign, a $12 million comprehensive fundraising initiative to elevate the voices of Chicago’s youth.

When asked why they continue to support CCC, the Fealys share that they could never turn their backs on the young people who have provided so much joy, love and inspiration to them and the city of Chicago. They are proud to support an organization committed to inspiring and changing lives through music.

In addition to their support of CCC, the Fealys have been incredibly active in Chicago’s business and philanthropic scenes. Rose has built a successful career in finance, operations, client service and human resources in both nonprofit and private sector organizations and she is the Chief Financial Officer of the Museum of Science and Industry. Bob is a highly successful businessman who has led many early stage technology companies, has advised countless organizations through board service and has founded multiple companies including his most recent startup, ALUMinate.

CCC is proud to honor Bob and Rose Fealy for their many years of support and extraordinary commitment to raising our family of 5,000 voices across Chicago.
