CHICAGO, Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Brain Research Foundation (BRF) will bestow its 2017 Frederic A. Gibbs award to a Chicago couple dedicated to the support and growth of innovative neuroscience research, and a financial company whose philanthropic outreach has made it part of Chicago's cultural mosaic.

John Mabie, founder and chairman of Mid-Continental Capital, and his wife Martha will present the award for philanthropic leadership to Hope and Tom Reynolds for their distinguished commitment to BRF. Mr. Reynolds is a long-serving BRF trustee and a partner at the law firm Winston & Strawn. 

CIBC vice chairman, U.S. Region Norman R. Bobins will present the award for community service to Mesirow Financial, an independent and employee-owned investment, risk-management and advisory services firm headquartered in Chicago. The Discovery Dinner will be held Thursday, October 12 in Chicago.

"The contribution of this year's honorees illustrates the unique role that civic and philanthropic leaders can have in positively impacting important scientific research and initiatives that move our understanding of the brain forward," stated Dr. Terre A. Constantine, BRF Executive Director and CEO. "We are tremendously thankful for our community of dedicated, selfless and generous supporters like Hope and Tom and Mesirow Financial who fuel our work to advance innovative neuroscience research. And we thank BRF board members Norm Bobins and John Mabie for their continued participation in the Foundation and specifically in this year's awards."

The 2017 Brain Research Foundation Annual Gala is chaired by board trustee Richard Chaifetz and board trustee and Chair Peter Pond.

The Discovery Dinner is a major fundraiser for the Foundation and 100 percent of the proceeds go into basic neuroscience research that will impact our understanding and treatment of ALS, Alzheimer's, autism and virtually all neurological diseases and disorders.
