As summer draws to a close in Chicago - no really, it's gonna be over soon - yeah I know it's not sweater weather yet but - come on stop laughing - I've been asked to host some special events in the coming weeks to raise money for good causes.
The first event I'm going to tell you about is the "Hero Crawl." This is a superhero-themed pub crawl that is being held to Benefit Reading With Pictures, an organization dedicated to promoting literacy through the use of comic-books. Since comics played such a big part in my childhood and learning how to read, I feel it's important to support these good folks wherever I can.
Here are the details on the "Hero Crawl", along with a link where you can buy tickets to the event:
What is it?
Hero Crawl is a pub crawl with a super hero focus! Participants will be encouraged to wear colorful costumes or examples of “cosplay” that showcase their love of comic books. This event will benefit Reading With Pictures, a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Chicago, IL.
