BENEFITING: Grassroots Collaborative
EVENT DATE: Sep 22, 2016
We have been working hard to uplift the voices of our communities and fight against more budget cutbacks and the city, state, and Chicago Public Schools crisis. We need you to join us and raise your voice in song and defiance!
Help us raise funds to fight for revenue and resources for our communities. Enjoy a fun evening of karaoke, drinks, and appetizers at the elegant Mars Gallery (1139 W. Fulton Market). Some of Chicago's fiercest and favorite organizers will be singing!
We need your help to raise much needed, crucial funds to enable our fight back. Be a Team Leader, Team Member, or Supporter. If you are not part of a team, join us for just $25. (Pssst: You can casually drop by to make certain people sing. Yes!)
