On Monday, April 17, Housing Forward welcomed more than 200 guests to the annual Progressive Dinner to help those in the community that are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. The event, now in its 15th year, was hosted in three locations in Oak Park, Winberie's, Oak Park Brewing Company and L!ve Cafe, and included donations from Buzz Cafe, The Cheesecake Stand, Cucina Paradiso, and The Happy Apple Pie Shop. The Progressive Dinner was sponsored by corporate partner, BMO Harris Bank, and other local businesses including Pellegrini & Cristiano, Prairie Title, EJ Mullins Co, AA Rental Center, Dreschler, Brown & Williams Funeral Home, and Heritage Tile. Through ticket sales, the raffle and our generous sponsors and venues, the evening raised more than $15,000- enough to prevent 10 households from becoming homeless.
