The Occasion for Education (O4E) is an action-packed, activity-based, family-friendly FUNdraiser that raises funds to support educational outreach on the south side of Chicago. Activities will include the Illinois High School Alumni Hockey Tournament featuring 16 high school teams and over 200 players, a silent auction, raffles, bean bag tournaments, children’s games, face painting, a photo booth, balloon artists, public ice skating, curling, broomball, live music featuring Big Wig Mechanic, restaurant and bar access and more! O4E is the primary fundraiser for Hoku Scholars, an integrated, merit-based scholarship program that helps kids from America’s most vulnerable communities get into college. 100 percent of the proceeds from the event are put toward supporting students in our country’s most vulnerable communities, including Hoku Scholars' ongoing expansion to Percy L. Julian High School in Chicago’s Washington Heights neighborhood. Since Hoku Scholars was founded in 2012, it has provided more than $42,000 – all raised by grassroots volunteers – in scholarship awards to 70 students, with 92 percent of students becoming college-ready. Come out and celebrate for a great cause! Buy your tickets today: http://o4e.ticketleap.com/occasion-4-education/
