Recently, SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank helped the Bridgeview Chamber during their biggest fundraiser of the year, their annual golf outing. Our Marketing Rep Rick Gauger ran the closest to the pin contest. There were other contests as well, such as longest drive and lowest score.
Monies raised for this fundraiser went to the Chamber's Scholarship Fund, which aids local kids pay for their college tuition. Besides the golf, there were many raffle prizes. This year's golf outing was the best fundraiser the Chamber has had in many years.
SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank is always willing to help the community! Whether it is volunteering at a church, helping local Chambers, or cleaning up after storms, you can count on SERVPRO Bedford Park/Burbank to lend a helping hand.
SERVPRO Bedford Park a sponsor at CYC Fundraiser
Chicago Youth Center fundraiser at Wintrust Banking Center in downtown Chicago.
Friday, March 10, 2017, SERVPRO Bedford Park / Burbank was one of many sponsors of the CYC Fundraiser at the Wintrust Banking Center in downtown Chicago. CYC stands for Chicago Youth Center, an amazing facility that offers children 3-18 years old for full or half day educational and recreational programs in the South Shore neighborhood.
Their goal at this black tie affair was to raise $90,000 in a single evening with many raffle prizes donated, including several items from the World Champion Chicago Cubs! Attendees were also encouraged to make personal donations as well.
SERVPRO Bedford Park / Burbank is proud to support the fine work done at the CYC. The kids do craft items, learn to play musical instruments, work as a team to build robots, and other tasks that encourage the kids to use their imagination while building team cooperation.

Taken from a letter from CYC's Laura Robinson:
"On behalf of the Board staff, and children of Chicago Youth Centers (CYC), thank you for supporting our South Shore Shake & Stir event on March 18, 2016. The event celebrated CYC's Rebecca K. Croen Youth Center and the crucial work we do in the South Shore Community. Thanks to you, and donors like you, the Shake & Stir event netted more than $56,000. The funds raised will allow CYC to continue offering year-round programming, assuring that children have access to the educational, social, and emotional resources needed to succeed and persist in school, in their daily lives, and ultimately the workforce."
SERVPRO of Bedford Park/Burbank is always glad to help in any way we can. We not only help after disiaters, but we try to help the community in as many ways as possible.
