The picnic began with Brookfield Zoo's nature and science exploration activities provided by state Reps. Fred Crespo and Michelle Mussman. DJ Eric Brandt played country music tunes, while magicians performed magic tricks and a clown created balloon sculptures.

Guests were served chicken fingers and mostaccioli from Village Tavern and Grill, and hot dogs for lunch. Dessert was vanilla frozen custard donated by Barry Himmelfarb from Culver's of Schaumburg. After lunch, Schaumburg Boomer's mascot "Coop" made a surprise visit to greet and pose for pictures with the children before the bingo games started. Bingo winners won a door prize donated by local area businesses.

SWAP personnel set up the entire picnic, especially by moving the tables and trash cans provided by the Schaumburg Park District. Dean Kutramanis from GNP Realty Partners donated two outdoor air conditioners to keep guests comfortable from the heat, as two paramedics from the Hoffman Estates Fire Department were on-site to assist anyone. This year's picnic was another successful event because of volunteers, the many individuals, businesses and organizations, who contributed their time and financial support.
