The winner will be announced in October during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
2012 marks West Side’s 50th anniversary. Started in 1962, West Side began with one John Deere construction and forestry dealership with three employees on the “west side” of Chicago. Fifty years later, the third-generation family operation now serves more than 80 counties with 10 locations spanning across Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.
