On behalf of Maine Township, the elected officials and the hard-working staff especially those who administer our award-winning food pantry, I want to thank Jamie Rubin and his organization for the generous donation to our pantry from the proceeds of the recent Vine Street BBQ Competition. We were excited and proud to have our Food Pantry be a chosen recipient for this inaugural event. We also thank those which supported the event by their sponsorships including Orangetheory Fitness Park Ridge, Matt Ranalli and Brad Doyle of Holt’s Park Ridge (also the site for the wonderful volunteer appreciation party), Layer Cake Wines, Karl Gerzan Designs, Yelp Chicago Burbs, Allstate Insurance Agent John Tunnell, Vine Street Design, Niki Laskaris DDS, Levinson and Stefani, DiFranco Orthodontics, Brickton Art Center, Groot Industries, The UPS Store- Park Ridge, Neighborhood Remodelers, Laura M. Shea, D.P.M.-Podiatrist, Coyne & Company Insurance, WineStyles, If an Elephant Can Paint, and Allegro Music Center.
The combined efforts of the organizers, sponsors and volunteers have established a new annual event for Park Ridge. We all look forward to seeing this event grow and prosper in 2018 and beyond. Well done and thank you!
