Oak Brook Patch Event | By Community Contributor Liz Littwin
Join the Oak Brook Park District Foundation for a fun evening supporting a great cause!
On Wednesday, February 7, 2018, the Oak Brook Park District Foundation will be hosting an Unwine Wednesday fundraiser to build an all-inclusive, universal playground at Oak Brook's Central Park!
This one of a kind playground will remove both physical and social barriers so ALL individuals, with or without disabilities or critical illnesses, can play side by side with their peers and families.
The playground will feature many innovative pieces of equipment including a dual track zip line, a poured in place surface baseball diamond, and two levels of play that will be fully accessible through ramping. Play is a critical part of the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of every child as well as essential to developing cross-generational bonds. Our goal is to ensure no one is left on the sidelines.
The event will feature wine tastings with food pairings, silent auction, wine pull, plus more!
It takes a team to build a dream, and this project would not be possible without the amazing generosity of our community. For more information on the project, visit www.UniversalPlayground.org. Tickets are $40 per person.
