In November, platinum sponsors, members, and guests of
the SIOR Chicago Chapter gathered for a night of history,
football, networking, humor, and real estate. Anthony
“Spice” Adams, former Chicago Bear and current host of
Inside the Bears on the Chicago Bears Network, acted as
Master of Ceremonies for the “Halas Hall Experience,” the
Chapter’s Platinum Sponsor Appreciation event held at the
Bears’ headquarters and training center.
Attendees were treated to a tour of the facility and a Q& A
with current Chicago Bears “ballers”: cornerback Sherrick
McManis, #27; linebacker Sam Acho, #49, and defensive
lineman Akeim Hicks, #96. Leadership, ethics, work hazards, and passion for the game were all part of the spirited
conversation. The night finished with a soliloquy from King
Richard III performed by Acho, an avid lover of Shakespeare. Photographed left to right: Adam Roth, SIOR; Anthony “Spice” Adams;
