The Chicago/Dempster Charity Wine Walk in Evanston was a rousing success! We are humbled by the support of our Chicago/Dempster community, the Chicago/Dempster Merchants Association and Evanstonians in general, who turned out in droves to support our No Boundaries program. No Boundaries – Train for Work, Train for Life, is a workplace skills program for people with disabilities. The numbers have come in, and as it turns out, people want to have individuals in disabilities in their community! In all we raised a grand total of $5,700!
The numbers speak for themselves: 300-400 people attended the Visibility Arts Show in our space at 824 Dempster Street. That Visibility Arts show sold 9 out of 15 art pieces, which included 5 drawings by our No Boundaries participants! The proceeds are being shared between the Evanston Arts Center and our No Boundaries program.
We cannot thank the community enough for participating. Thanks to your support, No Boundaries will continue our mission of training people with disabilities for the workforce. Search, Inc. is also now a member of the Chicago/Dempster Merchants Association! Again, thank you for your support!
