Seven years ago, I had this idea of socializing the neighborhood of Logan Square through community news, local events and social engagement that occurs offline. LoganSquarist has grown since 2011 to become a go-to resource for the neighborhood. With the loss of news heavyweights, our responsibility has grown even more important in keeping a community informed and connected.
Our success is largely due to neighbor support from readers like you and an amazing group of staffers lending their volunteer time. To say launching LoganSquarist has been a humbling one is an understatement.
At our annual fundraiser, we’re celebrating this amazing entity we’ve been able to build together.
Join Us at the Seventh LoganSquarist Annual Fundraiser Held at The Joinery
This year, the LoganSquarist Annual Fundraiser will be held Thursday, May 17 at 7 pm at The Joinery (2533 W. Homer St.). The event celebrates seven years and proceeds will go to covering our operating costs. In addition, a portion of the proceeds will go to the One Tail at a Time, which rescues all of our four-legged friends.
The ’60s-style carnival event features a silent auction, raffle, photo booth courtesy of Fotio and music provided by DJ Select Inverse. Drinks and light snacks provided by local sponsors, including Big Delicious Planet, Mesh & Bone, Middle Brow Beer Co., Foodsmart and more. In other words, we have your evening covered.
Get inspired for the event with this Pinterest board of ’60s style.
In addition, don’t miss the silent auction with items from Dill Pickle, Bang Bang Pie, Cafe Mustache, Giant, Steel Petal Press and dozens of other businesses.
