Hundreds stood in line, September 18, 2014, during the Chicago/Dempster Charity Wine Walk in Evanston to show their support for people with disabilities by giving a $15 donation that will be divided between our No Boundaries program, a Search Inc. program providing workplace training to individuals with disabilities, and the Evanston Arts Center. As people enjoyed the wine tasting, they visited many of the businesses and members of the Chicago/Dempster Merchants AssociationWe were excited to see so many people come out to see the different businesses on Chicago and Dempster while enjoying wine tastings from Vinic Wine Company. What a success it was!

At 824 Dempster Street, we combined two things people love – wine and art, to show how talented our Search, Inc. and No Boundaries artists are. The Visibility Arts show, “The Path to Independence: Finding Your Voice” , highlighted fifteen artists with disabilities with four from our No Boundaries program.  What was the best part? Our No Boundaries participants were there to talk about their artwork and even sold their pieces! All of the money goes to the artists and it shows how impactful the artwork is to the community.

Thank you to the Chicago/Dempster Merchants Association for choosing us as beneficiaries of the Wine Walk and the City of Evanston for helping us prepare. Special thanks to Search, Inc.‘s Tina Zemen, Manager of Visibility Art, for helping us put together such a successful Visibility Arts show!
