Stacy, along with his colleagues, participated in Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity’s Building On! initiative, which engaged corporate sponsors and employee groups to build Habitat homes across the region. The residents were presented with their homes in special dedication ceremonies in November 2015.
The KoenigRubloff Cares Foundation also partnered with The Sunshine Kids on their first series of events in Chicago this past September, providing a special day for children at Lurie’s Children’s Hospital and the following day enjoying a day at Wrigley Field with Sunshine Kids to watch the Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds.
