Event Spotlight: Literacy Works June Jamboree Benefit

Literacy Works is holding their 7th annual June Jamboree Benefit, a night filled with live music, silent auctions, food, drink and children's activities. Tickets are $25 if purchased in advance and $30 at the door. Literacy Works's mission is to promote adult and family literacy in Chicago, helping to fulfill everyone's basic rights "to read, write, and interpret the world." By attending the Jamboree, your money will go toward working to achieve that goal and creating a richer community engaged in literature. Purchase your tickets by calling 773-543-2784 or emailing colleen[at]litworks[dot]org. The Jamborbee will take place at the North Park Village Nature Center, 5801 N. Pulaski Rd., from 6pm-9pm.
