This prestigious event will take place on Thursday, October 10, 2024, starting at 6 p.m. at The Dalcy events space, located at 302 N. Green St. in Chicago’s vibrant Fulton Market District.

The Naturally Chicago Founders’ Gala is a special occasion dedicated to honoring the Co-Founders of Naturally Chicago who are visionary leaders that have significantly shaped the natural products industry. Alongside Bill Weiland, the evening will celebrate Brandon Barnholt, Chairman of KeHE, and Tony Olson, Chairman of SPINS. These industry titans have been instrumental in driving growth and innovation within the natural and organic products sector.

The evening promises to be both inspirational and impactful, with Karuna Rawal, Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Marketing Officer at Nature’s Fynd, serving as the emcee.
