Civic Association Preps for Annual Gala

Published February 8, 2018

The McKinley Park Civic Association prepared for its annual banquet and fund-raiser at the monthly association meeting on Wednesday, February 7, at the McKinley Park public library. Tickets for the gala were selling briskly at the meeting and are still available for purchase through February 21, with a discount for tickets purchased through February 14.

Expected speaker and 11th Ward Alderman Patrick Daley Thompson was a no-show at the meeting due to his attendance of a different event, said association President Agnes Bednarkiewicz. Thompson was expected to speak and provide information about development for the abandoned former Wrigley factory property at 35th Street and Ashland Avenue. The association plans to follow up via a direct meeting with Thompson, Bednarkiewicz said.
