Prospect Heights Fire Relief Benefit Night at the Family Aquatic Center

27-Jul-2018

The Wheeling Park District, in cooperation with the District 214 Education Foundation, is hosting a fundraiser on Saturday, August 4, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm, at the Family Aquatic Center. All proceeds from the event benefit Wheeling High School students and their families affected by the recent fire.

The community is invited to come together for an evening at the Family Aquatic Center outdoor waterpark to support a great cause. A minimum donation of $5 per guest and $20 per family of five (Additional family members are $5 each.) includes admission to the pool and live DJ music provided by Elevated Entertainment. One hundred per cent of the entrance fee goes directly to the District 214 Education Foundation to help the 19 Wheeling High School students and their families displaced by the recent River Trails Condominium fire in Prospect Heights. All money raised will be disbursed through the District 214 Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and assist with the families' greatest needs as determined through conversations between the Wheeling High School student services team and the families. Every dollar will directly support the Wildcat family.
