Honors coming for Scott Hodes; Ann Gerber

TAKE A BOW: Scott Hodes, the veteran Chicago lawyer and leading member of Our Town’s arts community, will be named “Patron of the Arts” at the American Friends of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art Chicago Chapter’s fall gala on Nov. 21. J.B. Pritzker serves as dinner chair for the Trump International Hotel benefit — with Hodes’ longtime friend — the famed artist Christo — on hand to present the award.

Ann Gerber, likely is the nation’s longest-running newspaper columnist, who has been chronicling Chicago’s social scene for 60 years — will be honored with the Chicago Journalists Lifetime Achievement Award Sept. 27 at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza. Gerber’s six-decade career will be toasted by two of her former longtime Lerner Newspaper pals, editor Chris Baum and reporter Sandy Pesman.
