The American Jewish Committee honored senior advisor and retired Apollo Group Co-CEO Chas Edelstein with dinner, drinks and a lighthearted roast. On Dec. 5 more than 300 guests turned out at the Ritz-Carlton (160 E. Person) for an extra dose of entertainment as Edelstein’s celebrity pals Rob Schneider, Jack Hanna and Neil McCoy took the stage to playfully poke fun at the honoree. The evening netted tons of laughs and nearly $500,000 for the AJC.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
