Joe Sent Me: An Aurora Speakeasy – Aurora Historical Society’s Spring Fundraiser

March 10, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Prohibition? What Prohibition? It’s Friday night, let’s unwind a little!

Step back to the 1920s in Aurora, Illinois, a sophisticated little city where the Charleston was a way to sidestep the 18th Amendment.  There were other ways, but we’ll tell you about those when we see you.  Enjoy refreshments and adult beverages in a charming hideaway where the jazz is both hot and cool all night long, and the Revenuers will never find us.  Just remember the password.

One EastBenton, Aurora, Illinois (the basement of SupportTechs, in the former public library building)

$45 per person, Member $40, Cash Bar

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.

There’s no question in my mind that the scholarship I received opened up possibilities.

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.
