Asian new year event to benefit food pantry Jan. 19
Last updated 1/8/2020 at 3:53pm
MWRD Commissioner Josina Morita and other local leaders will host the second annual Asian New Year Fundraiser to benefit the Niles Township Food Pantry.
The event is at 2 to 4 p.m Sunday, Jan. 19 at Oakton Community Center, 4701 Oakton, Skokie.
Celebrate the Year of the Rat and support our local families in need across Niles Township.
Enjoy food from over a dozen local Asian restaurants and performances from local organizations, and bring your kids for fun crafts and lion dancers.
Tickets are $10 per person and $20 per family. We will also be collecting toilet paper and diapers — essentials that families cannot buy with EBT Cards.
Commissioner Morita and other organizers will cover the cost of the event so all money raised goes directly to the Food Pantry.
