Foundation Uniting Neighbors of District 69 is a volunteer, not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting the academic learning opportunities and experiences of all students in Skokie - Morton Grove School District 69 through partnerships within the community. FUND69 puts the money it raises directly into the classroom by funding teacher mini-grants. 

12th Annual February Fling Fundraiser - February 17th *NEW and IMPROVED Location* 

This years February Fling will bring a new venue and a different food format. The menu will include passed hearty appetizers instead of the typical banquet hall food. The one complaint I received, "It's the same banquet food every year!" Well not this year! Our new location is at Fairway Banquets which is part of the Niles Park District located at 6676 West Howard Street in Niles. It also happens to be across the parking lot from The Howard Street Inn which is a perfect after "the Fling" location to continue celebrating District 69. 

Here is the invitation. Feel free to print out and follow the directions for sending in payment.
Donations are always accepted and appreciated!
