Lincoln Square Moms and Friends Fundraiser for RefugeeOne

  • Flagship Tavern & Grill 1622 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

Hello! Please join the Lincoln Square Moms, our families, and friends at a special Friday Happy Hour on Friday, April 14th to raise money as we continue to support the impactful and tireless work of RefugeeOne. As many of you know, we're co-sponsors of a Syrian Refugee family who arrived in Chicago this February, along with baby Sham, who stole our hearts. Since their arrival -- and in part due to the national press coverage of our family's plight and the additional challenges of the EO -- our group has been able to fund our commitment to Baraa, Majeed and Sham for the next 6 months, and a significant number of us have also agreed to co-sponsor a second family (Windy City Friends of Refugees co-sponsor group through RefugeeOne) this fall. All proceeds from this fundraiser will meet additional immediate needs of our current family and fund the co-sponsorship of our second family.

Flagship Tavern and Grill has generously offered to host a Friday Happy Hour in support of RefugeeOne on Friday, April 14th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

We will be selling shots, raffling awesome prizes and gifts, plus happy hour food and drink specials! Raffle prizes include: 

Bespoke jewelry from Shannon Carney Jewelry (; tickets to a Chicago Bears game at Soldier Field; tickets for two to attend a production at Steep Theatre Company; tickets to a Chicago Cubs game!; group and private pilates lessons at Mind.Art.Core Pilates Performance (; a photoshoot with @photographyviaJasonThompson; a week at a flat Edinburgh! Plus, a pair of HAMILTON TICKETS (and parking)!!!!!! More prizes to be announced. We look forward to seeing you there!

ps. Kids are welcome!
