Five hundred of Sinai Community Institute’s supporters and benefactors dove headfirst into celebrating the organization’s 20 years of service June 22, boarding the Odyssey for an evening on the lake. “Windy City Live” co-host Ryan Chiaverini and actor Billy Zane emceed the nonprofit’s annual gala, where guests like Deputy Mayor Steve Koch, Loop Capital co-founder and President Albert Grace and Cinespace Chicago Film Studio President Alex Pissios enjoyed cocktails, dinner, desserts and fireworks. Longtime civic and healthcare leader Ruth Rothstein stole the show when she was recognized with the 2013 Spirit of Sinai Award. The funds raised will benefit the institute’s programs and initiatives.
