Walk A Mile In Her Shoes! (10:00 am - 1:00 pm)

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes will take place in Centennial Park on October 5th, 2014. The walk is designed to have men walk in women’s shoes to help bring awareness and raise support for the countless women that fall prey to horrific violence such as sexual assault. It’s an awesome cause for an very unfortunate circumstance. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC),  37.4% of female rape victims were first raped between ages 18-24 and in a study of undergraduate women, 19% experienced attempted or completed sexual assault since entering college. Although it’s a heavy topic our hope is to raise awareness and have a little fun doing it.

Thanks for your support!! Register at: www.northwestcasawalkamile.eventbrite.com

Northwest CASA is a non-profit organization that provides services to survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse, as well as their families.  All the services that are provided are free of charge and range from support hotline service, to court advocacy, to different types of counseling including art therapy and group therapy. The organization recently opened an office in Evanston to help better serve our clients in this area.

Events like Open Studios Evanston are ideal for building the artist-collector relationship.”

In addition to live performances the day features events demonstrations, talks on collecting, and the chance to see bodies of work scheduled to open in the future. “This is a wonderful opportunity for me to connect with the community while I’m in between shows,” adds Jennifer Presant a visual artist represented by Linda Warren Projects in Chicago who has a painting studio in Noyes Cultural Arts Center.

Fairy Tale Trail At The Woman's Club Of Evanston (4:00 pm - 8:00 pm)
Fairy Tale Trail (FTT), also known as “The Trail”, is the largest community outreach project of The Woman’s Club of Evanston. The mission of The Trail is to provide a safe, non-frightening, fun Halloween experience for children of all ages and abilities. The Trail is open to all children in the North Shore and Chicagoland, with a special focus on those who are physically, cognitively, or economically challenged. Each year the clubhouse ballroom is transformed into an interconnected maze of eight different themed rooms – each featuring a different children’s story or theme. Costumed characters interact with children to encourage exploration and participation in multi-sensory activities to engage and enchant children with and without special needs. The Trail has been in operation continuously since 1990 and has provided more than 30,000 children with accessible, non-frightening Halloween fun. FTT is a completely self-funded project. Trail maintenance and field trips for school programs for physically, cognitively or economically challenged students, who may not otherwise experience Halloween due to physical or financial limitations, are funded from donations, fundraising events such as the Character Meet & Greet, and the Public Hours general admission fees. In 2013, FTT offered free field trips to over 400 children from over a dozen schools, as well as provided bus scholarships for those schools that were unable to afford the transportation. Admission is $5 for public hours.

Evanston Symphony Orchestra - Russian Rhapsodies (2:30 pm - 4:30 pm)
The Evanston Symphony Orchestra, led by Musical Director Lawrence Eckerling, performs Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, one of the supreme virtuoso works for piano and orchestra. This work is paired with the Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes by the Russian/Polish Mieczyslaw Weinberg, composed just after World War II to honor his Moldavian-Jewish heritage. This will be the Midwest premiere of this vibrant work. Prokofiev meant for his Fifth Symphony to “glorify the human spirit,” and it reflects the optimism of the future victory near the end of World War II.
