It is with great pride that we provide this free event to residents who are often overwhelmed with negative ideas of what it means to be an inner-city resident of Chicago. The kick-off event for So Fresh Saturdays on June 2nd will include positive entertainment from over 10 local musicians and artists plus offer a community resource fair that brings together nearly 20 organizations and schools that have programming and opportunities for resident. Children of all ages can take part in a variety of games, arts and crafts, as well as a bounce house. Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a raffle and receive complimentary food. And in solidarity with the Moms Demand Action and Everytown Survivor Network, we will also wear the color orange to honor all victims of gun violence and survivor families in our city, state and nation.
