What Do We Do?
We get together as a community once or twice a week — with the hope that smaller, unofficial meet-ups happen on their own! Our scheduled social gatherings are a time for us to welcome new people, reconnect with familiar faces, and get to know one another more.
We believe it’s important to give our time and talent to others. Our goal is to give back to our neighborhood institutions, as well as the wider Chicago area. We regularly share opportunities in our newsletters, and we encourage people to find ways to give back on their own or in smaller groups too.
Make sure you’re following us on Instagram to see stories of Chicago folks living life boldly, as well as tidbits on Chicago eats, Chicago culture, and Chicago happenings. We try to get the word out on the good things happening in the Windy City that we feel our community should look into and know about!
