Description

The StreetWise Associates Board invites you to The COOL Party, a 4th annual benefit for StreetWise celebrating the hard-working men and women of the organization and their legacy.

Why is it so "COOL"? Just as StreetWise vendors are at the heart of this city, we wanted to honor the heart of Chicago - its unrelenting and unique creative scene. Hence, The "Creative Outlets Of Life" (COOL) Party came to be...

The COOL Party will bring together art, music, dance and generous people like yourselves to help fight homelessness. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of Chicago's artists, dancers, and musicians. Indulge in the open bar and nosh on treats from some of Chicago's finest vendors.

For the 4th year in a row, join us for the COOLest entertainment:
- Live performances from an awesome band (to be announced soon!)
- A unique gallery featuring works from local artists
- A rousing performance from local activist Malcolm London
- A DJ to keep you dancing all night (8–11p)
- Fantastic raffle prizes, including live painted artwork

Many of your favorite Chicago brands will be helping us create the right atmosphere for a ton of fun while your donations and tickets support those in need with every penny going straight to StreetWise!

Why?
  • You've seen StreetWise vendors selling their magazines on the corners of Chicago streets. Our sellers are actually entrepreneurs - they've bought those magazines and they sell them to make a living. In addition, StreetWise offers a full range of social services that help our vendors: access to temporary housing, financial education, computer literacy courses, and learning platforms that educate and help them secure stability.
