Central Street Community Weekend

October 11-12, 2014

Central Street Neighbors Association is proud to cosponsor Community Weekend 2014 when the Central Street Business Association will hold this year’s fall shopping and fundraising event
to support nonprofit organizations in our community.
Community weekend is a unique way to support not only our local independent shops, but organizations throughout the City that provide services that support us in so many ways.
Here’s how it works. All you need to do is shop. Yes, just stop in at one of the participating businesses on Central Street – both east and west of Green Bay Road. A percentage of your purchase will be earmarked to the charity of your choice from among ten respected organizations in Evanston.
It is painless! Flyers in the stores and distributed in the community include a portion where you can check off your designated charity for the contribution. The amount given to each organization
by the businesses varies. More details on the participating shops and the charities that will benefit can be found at
the website for the Central Street Business Association
