Event description

Description

The Arts of Life Associate Board will be hosting its third annual OscArts of Life Fundraiser. You can come dressed up or dressed down — but new this year is a contest for “Best Dressed” and “Best Movie-Themed Costume.” Winners receive a trophy made by the artists of The Arts of Life along with a $50 gift certificate towards buying one-of-a-kind artwork.

Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting the Oscars this year, guaranteeing a night full of laughs. Appropriately, we will be hosting this event at @North Bar, which is home to many of Chicago’s best comedy shows (www.liveatnorthbar.com). @North Bar has graciously agreed to donate 15% of the night’s earnings to The Arts of Life and to forward any “live music” tip that you include on your credit card receipt. Have a cocktail or four – it’s helping a nonprofit 501(c)3!

Bonus this year: The first 20 people to buy an early-bird ticket online (includes a ballot) will receive a complimentary drink/beer ticket!

When: Sunday, February 26, 2017, 6 -11 p.m. (Oscars start at 7:30 p.m.)

Where: @North Bar in Wicker Park, 1637 W North Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

The Arts of Life is people, with and without disabilities, creating an artistic culture to realize their full potential. Opened in 2000, The Arts of Life was the first program in Chicago to provide employment in the arts for adults with developmental disabilities. The studio serves as both an alternative day program and creative epicenter for its artists. Funded partly by the Department of Human Services, also greatly depends on fundraising efforts and grants to sustain its program.
