On behalf of the SOAR Board of Directors we wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year. We are fortunate that the year has been one of prosperity in our Streeterville community despite uncertainty around the world. As we celebrate the holidays and 2017 begins, our priority continues to be to represent residents of Streeterville and ensure our neighborhood remains a world class neighborhood with a truly high quality of life for all.
SOAR has a 40+ year history of connecting Streeterville residents through advocacy, information, service, cultural and social programs. Our plan is to continue to be relevant, responsible, reliable and responsive to issues and opportunities that affect the community. We have developed an impactful 2017 calendar of activities and causes, some repeats and some new ones. Stay tuned for more information.
That is why I ask again for your support of the 2016 SOAR annual appeal. Please contribute what you can online at http://soarchicago.org/annual-appeal/. Or phone 312.280.2596 to discuss your gift with our staff. If you wish to contribute by check there is a self-addressed envelope enclosed in the package you received in the mail. SOAR is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and annual appeal contributions are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Thank you so much to the members and friends who have already made a contribution.
In celebration of the New Year, SOAR members are invited to the SOAR Annual New Year Kick-Off and Volunteer Recognition Party. Tuesday January 10, 2017 from 6:00-8:00 PM., at the acclaimed Green River restaurant recently awarded a coveted Michelin star. Please RSVP by January 6th to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note this is a members only event.
Happy Holidays! As always, I will be happy to respond to your questions and comments when you reach me by email.
