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!

I really enjoyed attending the Wine Walk event!! It was really cool!! I think it’s great that the community raised a grand total of $5,700!! I also learned that Search, Inc. is now a member of the Chicago/Dempster Merchant Association, after the event. 300-400 people visited No Boundaries for the event, which was awesome!! I remember there were a real lot of people there at the event!! The Visibility Arts Show sold 9 out of 15 art pieces, which included 5 drawings by me and other No Boundaries participants- a total of 5 participants.

It depends where you live. I live in Eau Claire, WI and I have a butiaeful brand new bi-level for only 122,000 but I have an old college friend in the city of Chicago who bought a pre-lived in, small two bedroom condo for 300,000. See the difference! If you’re looking for more for your money, try looking on the outskirts of the town you want to live in. Plus, most likely the town/city will grow, wich will increase the value of your home over time. My grandfather made his fortune building homes in the McHenry, Il area and he always told me, by the worst’ house in the best’ neighborhood and fix it up! although the market isn’t as good for this as it used to be. You’re lucky that you’re a buyer in a buyer’s market either way! interest rates are low and people can’t sell their houses so they’re going cheap. good luck!References : Was this answer helpful?

I had really enjoyed being at the wine walk, my favorite store is Secret Treasure Antique Store up on Dempster St. Every Tuesday afternoon I love going there, at my lunchbreaks.
