Illinois school district benefit to support the fine arts program.

Rockford Is My Home

I have lived and worked in Rockford for many years now. In fact, I have been in the Forest City longer than anywhere else.

The decision was made in the beginning that if I really wanted to be a part of the community, I should actually live in the city, not any of the surrounding towns.

My wife and I also decided that our daughter would go to Rockford public schools. By the way, she enjoyed the experience and received a great education.

Benefit For Rockford Fine Arts Coalition

The event is this Thursday, September 9th from 5 pm to  9 pm at Casey's Pub, 7303 N Alpine Road in Loves Park. For more info, HERE.

Okay, so here is the deal. Some other folks you might know and myself will be doing some guest bartending at Casey's Pub. From 5 pm to 9 pm any tips will be donated towards fine arts scholarships for Rockford students.

It is a great cause to support programs that really need backing in our community. It is very important that all children have the opportunity to participate.
