Every year our Back to School Event hosts a large promotion.
In 2019, a mobile truck from T-Mobile greeted guests at the main entrance, providing assistance with technology questions and showcasing new mobile products. T-Mobile has entered into a Chromebook hotspot partnership with us, providing free hotspots for student-issued devices for all of our students.
In 2018, the local animal shelter in Cicero "Waggin Tails" give our community the opportunity to adopt animals for FREE!
We love when the media comes out to cover or preview our event.
The last two years the Univision Deportes 1200AM radio came to do a live talk show from our event.
The event is also catching the attention of local and regional news stations. Last year Univision Chicago came out to do a news package on the event.
Every year several local or regional vendors, colleges, and organizations come out to promote their business.
