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, Windy City Friends of Refugees, 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, the Lincoln Square Moms are 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 & 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.

Our Happy Hour packages (both options are from 6-9pm and $5 for every Happy Hour wristband will go to RefugeeOne):
1. $25 well drinks, domestic draft, and a food item
2. $30 call drinks, domestic bottles, and a food item
