International Women’s Day Edgewater Crawl

Thanks for joining us on the streets of Edgewater!

The night of March 8th in Edgewater was filled with celebration for International Women’s Day! We had food tastings, drink samples and live pop up activations  on our crawl’s route along Broadway  to tour women-owned businesses. Check out more photos on Facebook!

Contribution to a Stronger Future

A portion of every  ticket benefitted GirlForward, a local nonprofit that serves as a community of support dedicated to creating and enhancing opportunities for girls right here in Chicago who have been displaced by global conflict and persecution.
