Saturday, September 22nd, The Veltway Corporation will be hosting The 3rd annual Concert Across Chicago To End Gun Violence. Our local participation in this national event will be at School of Rock Oak Park, 219 Lake Street, Berwyn, IL. This event will be connected through social media. Current combined social media outreach of non-profit partners is at 407,454 (Facebook) and growing. I am writing to ask you to join us as a local sponsor this year. Our goal is to reach $50,000.00. In previous year’s events, The Veltway Corporation, Inc., raised over $12,000.00 in funding for Peace Hub Chicago and The Non-Violence Institute of Chicago, and BUILD CHICAGO, each of these organizations work at providing our youth with dispute resolution skills and other programs to divert their involvement from relationships and activities that result in Gun Violence. Net proceeds from this year’s local Concert Across America will be donated to INSTITUTE FOR NONVIOLENCE CHICAGO, an organization providing services and programs in our Austin community, and greater Chicago area to end the current epidemic of gun violence.
Please join us with your support this year as we work to support INSTITUTE NONVIOLENCE CHICAGO’s ongoing efforts to stamp out this cycle of senseless deaths in our community.
