Drink a Glass – or Two – for a Great Cause!
Join the Oak Brook Park District Foundation for a fun evening supporting a great cause! On Wednesday, February 7, 2018, the Foundation will be hosting an Unwine Wednesday fundraiser to build an all-inclusive, universal playground in Oak Brook's Central Park! The event will feature wine tastings with food pairings from La Barra Ristorante, raffle, wine pull, plus more! Tickets are $40 and available for purchase online.
This one of a kind playground will remove both physical and social barriers so ALL individuals, with or without disabilities or critical illnesses, can play side by side with their peers and families. It will feature many innovative pieces of equipment including a dual track zip line, a poured in place surface baseball diamond, and two levels of play that will be fully accessible through ramping. Play is a critical part of the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of every child as well as essential to developing cross-generational bonds. Their goal is to ensure no one is left on the sidelines. It takes a team to build a dream, and this project would not be possible without the amazing generosity of the community.
Thank you to event sponsors Karl and Gayle Maurer and La Barra Ristorante as well as raffle sponsor RealtyOne & Associates - Megan Johnson and Alyssa Pisarski.
