May 24, 2012 marked a year of victories in children’s product safety and KID honored Sonny Garg, Chief Information and Innovation Officer, Exelon, as our 2012 Best Friend for his instrumental role in developing local and national responses to unsafe children’s products and for his strong leadership as a board and advisory board member for KID.

This year, KID boosted the energy level of the event with an exciting tasting menu from top Chicago chefs. Guests mingled with KID supporters while sampling delicacies from restaurants around Chicago. Mixed in among the tasting stations was an interesting array of silent and live auction items.

Many thanks to our participating chefs from:
