Northbrook Civic Foundation has been funding many worthy causes in Northbrook for over 100 years. The primary vehicle through which Civic raises funds is its annual Northbrook Days Festival, a 5-day carnival event held in early August, which only happens because of the involvement of many dedicated volunteers.

In recent years, in response to requests by families living with disability, Civic created "Fun for People With Special Needs," which is a two-hour Saturday morning time slot, during which children, teens and adults with disabilities and their families have exclusive access to Northbrook Days' rides, games and entertainment free of charge. While this program is primarily for residents, participants of programs sponsored by the Northern Suburban Special Recreation Association are also eligible to participate. This Civic-sponsored activity is a very special time for families living with disability since it offers them a chance to have fun in a "disability-friendly" environment, without long lines or impatient workers and other customers, and without spending a fortune. It also provides a time when many of us can see old friends or classmates, and enjoy socializing.

Thanks to the Civic Foundation for this wonderful annual event!
