The event is a Bottle and Bottega instructor-led fun painting session. If you are not familiar with Bottle and Bottega, it was founded in 2009 as "Chicago's first art and wine entertainment studio offering a fun, unique alternative to an ordinary night out!"
Instead of going all the way to the Glen Ellyn location, we are bringing them to you, right in Palatine, in The Bridge's backyard.
The Bridge Youth & Family Services is a non-profit organization who's mission is to help young people and their families achieve social and emotional health.
This organization will be celebrating 50 years of services in 2015 and the funds raised at this event will be put towards next year's marketing and promotions.
On Monday, we had the privilege of providing event services (registration, check-out and auction services) for The Bridge Youth & Family Services of Palatine. If you are a regular visitor of our site, you may have noticed that we are a huge supporter of The Bridge, which provides programs and services to children and their families in northwest suburban Chicago, regardless on one's ability to pay.
The event was their annual Peter D. Cunneen Memorial Golf Classic, named for past executive director Peter D. Cunneen. At the Inverness Golf Club, nearly 200 golfers and dinner guests. bid on live and silent auction items, entered a raffle for a chance to win some cool prizes (iPad, 60" Smart HDTV, Bose Headphones, or One Week Vacation for 4) and best of all, participated in goodhearted competition in Fund-a-Cause (you may know it as a paddle raise).
