Jim Berardi is asking for members to help with our major fundraiser with the following:

Sponsors needed for Draw Together, the largest sidewalk chalk drawing event on the North Shore, Saturday, Aust 19, 2023, from 11 AM to 3 PM.

Designed as a family-friendly community event, Draw Together includes an open house for art classes for all ages and skill levels with hands-on demonstrations and a host of special events.

All funds raised will support the art education programs at TAC, a 63-year-old not-for-profit organization, with scholarships, supplies, outreach, and the over 300 classes we offer with over 2,400 enrollments a year.

Food, Music, Fun: This year the event will include treats from the Fat Shallot food truck, a DJ, Bach to Rock Music School, and live performances by Laura Doherty & The Heartbeats.

A Chicago favorite in the family music scene, Laura Doherty & the Heartbeats, acoustically rock your kid’s world with breezy folk-pop tunes from her multi-award winning recordings, including her latest album "High Five", full of upbeat and heartfelt songs about friendship, family and childhood. - Chicago Tribune

Added bonus: kids can meet Daisy from the PBS Daytime Emmy Award Winning program, Nature Cat, live and ‘in person’! 

It’s not too late to become a sponsor for the great, family-friendly event. You can even sponsor chalk boxes we’ll donate to other not-for-profits in the area.
