50 IS COMING!

In appreciation of our clients and employees, Sterling kicked off its 50th anniversary celebrations last weekend in Itasca, IL at the Scottish Festival and Highland Games! Despite cool temperatures and occasional rain, multiple generations of Sterling employees, clients, and alumni joined our festivities for a record turnout. Bagpipes, rugby, whisky tastings, the caber toss, and haggis throwing were just part of the fun at the Highland Games, which are held by Chicago Scots, Illinois’ oldest charity. The Sterling tent featured food, entertainment, games, and our very own Iron Throne!

As the Highland Games’ title sponsor, Sterling was also treated to a demonstration from world champion and multiple world record holding strongman Spencer Tyler. Sterling’s CEO Dolores Connolly capped off the festival by presenting awards at the Pipe and Drum Competition, North America’s largest!
