Where: Switchfast HQ – 4043 N. Ravenswood Ave, Suite 126, Chicago, IL 60613
When: 11/9 from 9 AM – 3 PM

This year we gathered 34 brave donors to provide aid for Chicagoans in need. Since each donation helps to save three lives, our efforts will help save 102 patients in our community. The event was very successful. For a recap view our blog posting on the event.
