Klein, senior portfolio manager for MB Financial Bank, will be the guest speaker at the Prairie State College Foundation Economic Forecast Breakfast at 7:30 a.m., March 15, at the Olympia Fields Country Club, at 2800 Country Club Drive. MB Financial Bank is the event sponsor.
A continental breakfast will be served at 7:30 a.m., followed by the featured presentation at 8:15 a.m.
The cost is $25 per person, and advance registration is required by calling the PSC Foundation at (708) 709-3636. The registration deadline is March 8.
Additional sponsorships are available. A $300 table sponsorship will reserve a table for 10, and includes breakfast and recognition listings in the program and event signage. A $75 Friendraiser sponsorship will reserve two seats, and includes breakfast and recognition listings.
In addition to providing a prominent expert’s analysis of the economy to the south suburban business community, the breakfast also raises scholarship money for PSC students.
“Sponsorships underwrite the costs for the Economic Forecast Breakfast and allow companies to use the event as a 'friendraiser' for their own clients and/or key employees,” said Cathy Kloss, executive director of the foundation. “We welcome individuals and companies to hear from an expert economist while supporting PSC student scholarships.”
