On Oct. 15, 2019, Clearbrook, an organization dedicated to providing innovative services, opportunities, and supports to over 8,000 people impacted by intellectual/developmental disabilities, hosted its first Around the Block event in downtown Arlington Heights. The event kicked off at 4:30 p.m. at Hey Nonny's Restaurant in Arlington Heights, where the registrants were split into groups before embarking on a tasting tour downtown. It featured a variety of menu items, from chips and salsa to hamburger sliders with crispy onion string! Clearbrook would like to thank the restaurants that participated, including: Hey Nonny, Mago Grill and Cantina, Berry Yo, La Tasca, TTOWA, and the Tuscan Market Wine Shop!

The registration fee included a colored Clearbrook backpack (specific to each group), that granted entrance into each restaurant for the tasting. The event also featured a silent auction with a variety of gift baskets to help support Clearbrook!
