Money will be raised for the Friends of HE Parks Foundation at two events next month.
The Chicago Soul FC will donate $4 to the foundation from every ticket sold for their game against the Rochester Lancers at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 8. Tickets can be purchased at searscentre.com using the promo code HEPD.
The foundation is also hosting a Girl Friends Night Out fundraiser from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21 at First Place Sports Bar, 1736 W. Algonquin Road in Hoffman Estates. Tickets are $25 per person in advance or $30 at the door. That includes two hours of open bar, a dinner buffet, a goody bag for the first 50 women and a chance to win prizes.
The foundation funds a bus that transports low-income families to community events. It also raises money to enroll children in park district programs if their families can't afford it.
