Summertime and BenFest

As the last official day of school rolled by, Summer is on the mind. And one highlight of Summer is BenFest!

BenFest (July 19-21) will be full of games and activities for the kids, music, food and adult beverages up for the grown ups, and a great chance to support your parish.

Come and find out why the Chicago Tribune called BenFest one of the city's best family fairs!

Here's how you can help make BenFest a success:

* Consider becoming a BenFest Friend (BFF). Being a BFF gets you lots of goodies - admission passes, wrist bands for kids’ activities, out of uniform passes and special recognition.

*Order 3-day entry wristbands for you and the kids

* Volunteer! We need people for set up and tear down, working the gates and kids areas. Please consider signing up for a shift or two!

* Do you know a store/venue that might like to participate at BenFest? Let us know! Thanks to UPS, Lakeshore Beverage, Chiro One, Waveland Bowl, Cutwater Spirits and Heather Hurst, a partner at Davis | Friedman, for event sponsorships. (See our Sponsorship/Giving page for details.)
