2023 Evening of Elegance

The Chicago Society of the PNA cordially invites you to join us at our Evening of Elegance. The gala event will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2023 at the Park Ridge Country Club, Park Ridge, Illinois. During this event we will install the 2023 Officers and Directors.

This year we are honoring The Legion of Young Polish Women. On September 2, 1939, the day after Nazi's invasion of Poland, Helen Lenard-Pieklo and a group of young ladies founded the Legion of Young Polish Women. A mere one month later this organization had collected over $2,500 and enlisted over 350 members. Their contribution during the war was brave and invaluable.

Today’s members carry on the great tradition of their founding members as they continue to support worthy organizations and causes in Poland and abroad. The Legion was one of the first Polish organizations to take action in support of the crisis in Ukraine and we applaud them for what they have done and continue to do in support of worthy causes and the preservation of Polish heritage, culture and traditions.

In addition to The Legion of Young Polish Women we will be honoring one of our members with the 1st ever Romuald Matuszczak Member of the Year Award!


The evening will start at 6:00 pm with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Music will be provided by our own Brother Anthony Kawalkowski and his Orchestra. Tickets for this event will be $150 per person which will include a dinner choice of Petite Filet & Chicken Francaise, Chicken Piccata & Salmon or Vegetarian. Black-tie is optional for this event but always welcome. Look out for the invitation in the near future.

We will also have a program book for this event.  The program book will allow you to demonstrate your support for the Chicago Society and The Legion of Young Polish Women by placing a congratulatory message or advertisement.  Full page ads are $100, half page are $75 and quarter page are $50. Inside front and back as well as outside back covers are also available on a first come first serve basis. If you are interested in placing an ad, you can do so by using the button below.
