Clevelandfest in Chicago

Clevelanders Take on Chicago!

The second annual Clevelandfest was held on the streets of Wrigleyville Saturday, April 25th in honor of cancer warrior Kevin Healey, with all proceeds benefiting Rise Above It (RAI). Over 50 Cleveland natives, currently living in Chicago, joined full force for a bar crawl in the spirit of Kevin and in support of RAI’s fight against adolescent and young adult cancer. The Clevelandfest crew visited six bars throughout the day and great times were had by all! The event was an excellent opportunity for fellow Clevelanders to gather for a great cause and also helped solidify RAI's footprint in Chicago.
