Off The Street Club Hosting 8th Annual Firefly BallWednesday, July 20, 2016 Jennifer Oquendo
As we all know the violence in Chicago continues to increase and lately all we hear about is the negativity. It's unfortunate that kids can no longer be kids in the comfort of their front yard or their local parks. With the dangerous violence and gang activities that are on the rise, it's sad to know that neighborhoods aren't safe for our little ones. Thankfully there are organizations that are focused on helping and reaching out to the kids and young adults of our communities. One organization that is making a positive impact and change especially in the West Garfield Park neighborhood is the "Off The Street Club."
The 8th annual Firefly Ball will be held at Morgan's located at 950 W. Fulton street, on July 22, 2016 from 7:00pm-11:00pm. This is a special moment for a lot of the children because they look forward to being part of the Camp Mathieu experience. During these times when our communities are seeing turmoil and constant loss, it's nice to see organizations standing in the gap for our communities!
