Literacy Volunteers of Illinois to Host 11th Annual SCRABBLE for Literacy Challenge



Literacy Volunteers of Illinois (LVI) to Host 11th Annual SCRABBLE for Literacy Challenge

Literacy Volunteers of Illinois (LVI) will be hosting the 11th Annual SCRABBLE for Literacy Challenge on Sunday, November 2, 2014. The event will be held at the Grossinger Honda Center, 6600 N. Western Ave. Chicago, IL 60645, from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. 

The event will support the fight against low literacy in Illinois and the potential joblessness, homelessness and incarceration that can result. 

“The SCRABBLE Tournament is designed to raise the visibility of the issue as well as to raise funds to support our work with families and individuals in need. Low literacy is an issue that affects every aspect of our community though it is often one of the least visible,” says Dorothy Miaso, Executive Director of LVI.  

Attendees will have three options of SCRABBLE play at the event:
  • Compete one-on-one to become the Chicago SCRABBLE champion! Official SCRABBLE rules will apply but ‘Rule Breakers’ can be purchased. Prizes awarded to first, second and third place.
  • Set your own rules and play open games with your friends.
  • Play in an official North American SCRABBLE Players Association tournament! Must be a NASPA member; register at www.cross-tables.com.
Food and beverages will be served throughout the afternoon, along with a Silent Auction, a Raffle Contest and Prizes & Games giveaways! Tickets are $25 for adults and $10 for teens.


To register for the event, visit www.lvillinois.org.

ARTISTS OF THE WALL FESTIVAL, JUNE 14 – 15, 2014


ARTISTS OF THE WALL FESTIVAL, JUNE 14 – 15, 2014
 Artists Galore, Great Music, and a Beach Dedication

WHAT:

The Artists of the Wall Festival is an annual celebration of community and creativity.  Coordinated by members of the Loyola Park Advisory Council and staffed by a large cadre of volunteers, this festival brings neighbors of all ages together to paint the 600-foot long seawall at Loyola Park Beach in Rogers Park.  Each year there’s a new theme to provide inspiration as artists, young and old, create their masterpieces on one of 154 spaces that when combined create this new 5,000 square foot mural each year. This year’s theme is “Dreaming It Real.”


The festival began 21 years ago. Concerned residents (Katy Hogan, Richard Kaufman, Keith Lord, and Regina Robinson) wanted to deter crime and beautify the area by involving the police and community in painting the seawall. The effort has since become a celebration of Rogers Park - the city’s most diverse neighborhood - and its residents.  Proceeds of the festival go to support the many sponsored events of the Loyola Park Advisory Council and towards its scholarship fund.

In addition to the painting, this year’s Festival will also include:

·         The renaming of Pratt Beach to honor the late community Activist Tobey Prinz.  Prinz worked tirelessly to protect 13 beaches in Rogers Park and Edgewater from high-rise development. Her son, Fred Schein will speak during the
dedication.

·         A youth arts tent with hands on activities guided by Jessica Correa and Kristie Keenon of Mission Arts, Inc.

·         A Photo Show at this year's festival will showcase the talented photographers  of Rogers Park including a print of the late and now acclaimed Vivian Maier, which will be raffled off. Proceeds of the raffle will benefit the Loyola Park Advisory Council scholarship fund, which provides park program tuition assistance to children of families that normally could not afford to participate in the programs. The exhibit is coordinated by Eve Brownstone, Don Gordon, Andy MacDonald and Bill Morton.

·         An impressive and eclectic line-up of local musical talent on both Saturday and Sunday produced by Rogers Park musician Lucy Smith.

WHEN:
June 14 - June 15, 9:00 am to dusk. 
Each year the Artists of the Wall Festival is held on the Saturday and Sunday of Father’s Day weekend. Throughout the years, parents, especially Dads, have come to paint with their children.
