The men and women of Hose Company 1 are retired members of the Naperville Fire Department who maintain the first firetrucks and equipment that are displayed at the Naperville History Building. In addition, they also preserve a fire engine from the early 1920’s. This fundraiser helps keep all of these artifacts in tact for future generations to enjoy.
A majority of the firefighters who helped with the fundraiser worked at the original firehouse before it was transformed into a restaurant. We look forward to this day every year!
The mission of Grassroots Animal Rescue is to provide a high-quality foster home, medical care, and nutrition to all of their foster cats as they look for responsible and loving homes.
During the event, a live acoustic swing band entertained while guests were given a swing dance lesson by instructors. In addition there was a silent auction, food-themed cat toys, and of course … deep dish!
All proceeds directly benefited the medical care of cats and kittens of Grassroots Animal Rescue.

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?
