Chicago Awesome Foundation Anniversary

location Quenchers Saloon | 7 PM-9 PM Wednesday 27 April 2016 (CDT)

Celebrate our fifth anniversary and our $2 million milestone!

Celebrate the Chicago Awesome Foundation's fifth anniversary party.

The Chicago chapter of the Awesome Foundation has been funding awesomeness in the Windy City since 2011. Since our first grant (little free libraries), we've funded a wide range of amazing projects: a magic show at the MCA, hot food and soup for overnight riders on the Red Line in the winter, starting a beekeeping program at the Cook County Jail, minigolf on Milwaukee Ave, and so much more.

The Awesome Foundation is an ever-growing worldwide community devoted to forwarding the interest of awesome in the universe. Created in the long hot summer days of 2009 in Boston, the Foundation distributes $1,000 grants, no strings attached, to projects and their creators. Collectively, the Awesome Foundation network has given out over $2 million.

Come hang out with current and former trustees, grant winners, and a big group of generally awesome people — see you there!

Important Note: Quenchers is a cash-only bar with a small kitchen.
