Brook Forest Student Council weren't monkeying around when they raised $1000 in record time to support the Oak Brook Sandlot Universal Playground project.
"Our goal was to raise $1,000 over the course of the school year. However, our students came together and were able to collect the money in only two days!" explained Barb Mini of Brook Forest Elementary School.
Brook Forest students organized a Monkeying Around raffle and sold hundreds of tickets to support the project.
