At Metro Tech, students participating in the S.T.A.R.T. Program run breakfast in the cafeteria every day from start to finish, from laundry, to dishes, and everything in between.
The kids took a detailed tour of our kitchen to see how we operate compared to how they run their cafeteria, and they were pretty jealous that we send out our aprons and shirts to be cleaned and don’t have to wash them ourselves like they do at school!
Of course, they also enjoyed learning how to make their very own authentic Chicago-style deep dish pizzas – we had a blast, too!
The evening was designated to help fund much needed melanoma research and to honor influential individuals who strive to make a noticeable difference in the melanoma community.
The event took place at Rakow Branch. Families enjoyed an afternoon full of activities (all while snacking on deep dish) that included games, rides, storytelling, crafts, live music, and line dancing!
Is there a better way to welcome fall?
This event, the Chicago Compu-Challenge, was a one-day festival of fun, fitness, and fundraising that helped the World Bicycle Relief raise $100,000 to provide bicycles to students in rural Africa.
It was great riding tandem with you for this wonderful program!
Buffalo Grove Park District’s BG Singers celebrated their 25th Anniversary Show, A Night of Wishes, by partnering with The Make-A-Wish Foundation. It was a gratifying experience; the community choral group shared and recognized a historical milestone, all whilst raising funds for Illinois children in need.
It was great teamin’ up with you, Oswego Football. We hope that we helped fuel your hunger for some Friday night lights!
