KidzExpress Poetry Slam fundraiser is April 11

Come to the KidzExpress Poetry Slam performance in the Youth Room on Friday evening, April 11, 6:30 p.m.  You'll get a glimpse into the minds and hearts of a diverse group of young poets who range in age from 3rd grade to college. It's sure to be a lively evening--funny, poignant, revealing.

Kidz Express, a program on Chicago’s west side, serves at-risk children, youth and families in one of the nation's most underserved urban environments—the South Austin community. The freewill donation at the event supports the resurfacing of the floor of the basketball court at Kidz Express. Grace teen John Beck is heading up this effort as his Eagle Scout project.

Car wash on April 13. You can also support the project at a car wash on Sunday, April 13, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the parking lot at the Kirk Eye Center, 7427 Lake Street (next to the Jewel-Osco) in River Forest.
