On November 6th, Rise Above It (RAI) officially expanded to Chicago with its RAI-Chicago “Kickoff Party” at Emmit’s Irish Pub. The event was attended by over 70 people and coincided with the Cleveland Browns-Denver Broncos game. Even though the event was not a fundraiser, Emmit’s generously donated a portion of its bar sales to support RAI. The event was a resounding success and serves as the perfect springboard for future RAI-Chicago events.
RAI is expanding to Chicago to increase its fundraising base and to serve more patients in need. RAI-Chicago plans to launch exciting new fundraising events to help fund its rapidly growing patient demand.
RAI-Chicago’s first official fundraiser will be a Super Bowl Benefit at Casey Moran’s in Wrigleyville on February 1, 2009.
