Forester FANS in Chicago and the Burbs!

Forester FANS in Chicago and the Burbs!


Vice President for Athletics and Career Advancement Jackie Slaats, Interim Director of Athletics Blake Theisen, and Forester Head Coaches invite you to join them at two great opportunities this summer to connect with members of the athletic department and fans of Forester Athletics!

Hosted by alumnus Ken Ottaviano '92, the 2nd annual Forester FANS in Chicago event will be held on Wednesday, August 7 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Tenant Lounge located at 300 S. Wacker Drive. This after work "Happy Hour" includes appetizers, drinks, and beautiful views of the Chicago river and skyline!

As a new addition this year, the athletic department will also host the inaugural Forester FANS in the Burbs event on Sunday, July 21 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Bluffinia Concert Series in Lake Bluff.  At this event, the whole family will be able to enjoy live music featuring the Feel Good Party Band (Rock Pop) and delicious pizza provided by alumnus John Durning '88 (Pizzeria DeVille). 

All Forester fans are invited to attend this event free of charge, but we do hope to recruit new F.A.N. Club members. Those who are currently a part of the F.A.N. Club will have an opportunity to win some great raffle prizes throughout the evening.
