This weekend Peck Ritchey has several big events to share with our readers as we reach out to the community to advocate, raise awareness and educate.

THIS SATURDAY, September 11th, join Peck Ritchey as it proudly sponsors the Chicago Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk for the third year. We can’t say it any better than the Alzheimer’s Association: “With more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, and nearly 10 million more serving as caregivers, the time to act is now!” And World Alzheimer’s Day is September 21st so start your advocacy now!

In addition to the inspiring 5K walk down the Chicago lakefront, all of our team mates will receive a free autographed copy of Alzheimer’s Early Stages: First Steps for Family, Friends and Caregivers, written by our colleague Dan Kuhn of the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Illinois Chapter. For more information on this event, visit the Alzheimer’s Association website or contact Kate Konieczny, Marketing Coordinator, at

THIS SUNDAY, September 12th, at 10:30 a.m., from the comfort of your home,while you are reading your morning paper and sipping on some coffee, listen in to Radio 750AM  where Kerry Peck will chat live on “The Legal Forum” radio show about wills, trusts and estate planning.

Get questions answered such as:

  • What are the general building blocks of estate planning every person should have- regardless of income?
  • What is going on with the estate tax?
  • What is the difference between a living will and a power of attorney for healthcare and what will happen if I don’t have one?

A busy weekend for us, but we hope you can join us!
