For the third consecutive year, we are gathering to celebrate and support the cause of liberty at The Cotillion, a gorgeous banquet facility in suburban Palatine, Illinois. The Cotillion offers fine food, free parking, easy access to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, and affordable hotels nearby.

 

The Cotillionat 360 South Creekside Drive, Palatine, Illinois, is a classy place. Designed to accommodate wedding receptions, showers, corporate functions and other special events, it features majestic columns inside and out, grand staircases, and crystal chandeliers. We’ve reserved the entire facility, which can accommodate up to 900 people.

 

The food is great, too. On the menu for our event is a combination of filet mignon and filet of salmon, with especially good vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options also available. A dessert buffet with a wide range of chocolates, cake, and fresh fruit will tempt you to stick around after the program ends… and ruin your diet.

 

The Cotillion shares a large parking lot with the nearby landmark Harris Bank building (an 11-story office building, where The Heartland Institute briefly had offices some 20 years ago!). Parking is free and convenient.

 

The Cotillion’s location at the intersection of Highway 543 and Northwest Highway, just 15 minutes from O’Hare International Airport, makes it more convenient for many suburbanites and out-of-town guests than our usual downtown locations. By starting the program a little later than usual, we’re giving commuters time to get from the city to the event after work.

 

If you prefer trains to cars, The Cotillion is a 15-minute walk from the Arlington Park station on Metra’s Northwest Line. We have arranged for free shuttle-bus service between the train station to The Cotillion before and following the event, if you prefer not to walk.
