Ed’s Fest 2014 Recap & Thanks
Thanks to everyone who came out to Ed Debevic’s to support us this year. We were so happy to raise money for the following causes:
Israel Idonije Foundation– led by one of our favorite defensive ends of the Chicago Bears, the Israel Idonije Foundation is a 501-C (3) committed to helping Chicago’s under served neighborhoods. Israel himself showed up at Ed’s Fest and partied with us all day!
Rescue Warriors Corp-Puppies galore came to Ed’s Fest this year and were adopted by some of our guests (and our GM and her family!). Rescue Warriors Corp. works to rescue animals from high kill shelters throughout the Midwest. We’re grateful that they came to enjoy the day with us.
Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago– One of the top pediatric hospitals in the midwest, The Lurie Children’s Hospital is hard at work helping kids and their families with medical support. We hope our donations made a difference!
We also want to give a big thanks to our sponsors: Buedel Fine Meats & Provisions, 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, Love Me Tenders, Miller Genuine Draft, Coca-Cola, Empire Cooler Service, Inc.,Kinsella Landscape, Mitchell’s Soda Shop, and Eisenberg Sausage Co. Without you guys, this wouldn’t be possible!
Take a look at some of the pictures we snapped from the event on July 26. Hint: lots of cute puppies, classic cars and our dunk tank! Ice cream and hot dog eating contests were also in the mix. We can’t wait to throw another bash next year.
