Kindred Spirits 2019
Kindred Spirits Ad

This year’s Kindred Spirits fundraiser will be at the Irish Times Pub in Brookfield on Sunday August 25, 2019 from 4:00 – 6:30 PM.

Our annual fundraiser helps raise critical funds needed for our flagship program, Aunt Mary’s Storybook. When the options for contact are few, Aunt Mary’s Storybook helps build family relationships and literacy by creating a caring bridge between incarcerated parents and their children. The parent is recorded reading a special book aloud. Their children then receive the book itself and the recording. Aunt Mary’s Storybook helps maintain family connections at 17 correctional facilities throughout Illinois.

Kindred Spirits will feature food, drinks, and music. We’ll also be offering a book exchange; children should come with a new or gently used book to exchange for a different new or gently used book. We’ll also offer free face painting for kids! During the event, be sure to check our silent auction. We will be also be presenting our Facility of the Year and Volunteer of the Year awards.
