It’s Not Too Late! Register for Sweet Home Chicago Halloween 5K!
Help Raise Funds for the Illinois Arts Relief Fund
Performing arts venues are incredibly important to our City because they make up the fabric of our neighborhoods. In order to keep this rich, diverse part of our City’s culture alive, it is critical that we all pitch in. Please join us to show support and raise money for our performing arts community by participating in our virtual 5K over Halloween weekend!
We have a goal of raising $100,000. And thanks to:
- our presenting sponsor PNC
- matching grant sponsors Mars Wrigley and Cinespace Chicago Film Studios
- and everyone who has registered and donated to support the performing arts community
we will meet our goal.
All money raised, including registration fees and donations will go to the Illinois Arts Relief Fund, providing financial relief to workers and organizations – The Illinois Arts Relief Fund is administered by Arts Alliance Illinois.
