Sherry brings 20 years of experience to her role at Main Event. Her passion for event management began when she became the go-to-person for planning all social and company events for AT&T. After relocating back to Illinois, she was selected to work on the team that opened the Darien Buona Restaurant. After learning the business, she was promoted to business development and event manager for Beyond Events Chicago, the catering side of Buona Companies. Her experience successfully presenting large-scale events includes roof-top events for Wrigley Field and Chicago Cubs ballgames, and multi-day conferences for the University of Chicago.
Now with Main Event, Sherry enjoys bringing her list of social and corporate contacts to host events at the Warrenville Main Event venue. Her three sons are this single-mom’s proudest accomplishment. Her 25-year-old son son Alex is a Miami of Ohio Architecture graduate living in Chicago and working as an architect. Nick is 22 and a student at the University of Kentucky. Chris is 20 and a student at University of Missouri. When she isn’t working or selling events, you can find Sherry walking her dog, cooking new dishes for her friends, reading motivational books, or tending to her indoor herb garden and flowers.
