Proms & Pass Over... Oh my!!

Do you like helping children learn to read, write, gain confidence, and develop great people skills? Of course you do.

Then you are going to love this.....

Forget everything you know about high school prom, because 826CHI is bringing you Promic-Con 2013: ONE PROM TO RULE THEM ALL. At 8pm on April 27th, come to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Ballroom (112 S Michigan Ave) dressed in all manners of fandom (or secondhand formal-wear) for a night of cosplay, (free) drinking, geeking out, and DANCING. Tickets are $40 for one, $75 for two, and can be purchased at All proceeds from the event benefit 826CHI’s free writing programs for thousands of Chicago students. Promic-Con 2013: April 27th at the SAIC Ballroom. Allons-y!

Since we now know you love kids and educating them, then there may be a strong possibility you love to help and care/donate to/for the elderly! And maybe if you make an $8 donation, which is next to nothing, a Pre-Passover Meal to thank you for that $8 is pretty awesome!

I will be here attending a Pre-Passover meal where the donations support The Highland Park Nursing and Rehab Center (HPNRC) and the Highland Park Senior Center. I will be attending not for the religious reasons but because I care!

Here is all the info you will need for that...

The Highland Park Nursing and Rehab Center (HPNRC) is proud to be hosting a traditional Pre-Passover Model Seder in collaboration with the Highland Park Senior Center. The Seder, led by Rabbi Nosson Factor, will take place on Thursday, March 21st, at 11:30am at Highland Park Nursing & Rehab Center, 50 Pleasant Ave. in Highwood. A delicious gourmet Passover meal will follow the Seder from 12-1pm, where guests of all religions will feel at home as they enjoy classic Jewish dishes and learn about this ancient Jewish custom with family and friends. 

Admission will be $8 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased by stopping by the Highland Park Senior Center, or calling 847.432.4110. Admission will include a complementary Haggadah.
