The beautiful exhibit/auction of District 97 student bird paintings in the store windows of Fly Bird this May was our most successful ever! Customers admired and bid on the student works, with all proceeds benefiting the Oak Park Education Foundation. Bids started at just $10, with a “Buy It Now” option for just $30.
Fly Bird, at 719 Lake Street in Oak Park, features curious items for the happy home, body and mind. This is the 3rd year that Fly Bird owner and District 97 parent Julia Nash has hosted the fundraiser for the Oak Park Education Foundation.
Proceeds from the auction support the 4 Oak Park Education Foundation programs: Art Start, Global Village*, VEX Robotics and Architecture Adventure, which partner community experts in classrooms with more than 2,300 Oak Park students each year.
* Global Village is now known as Science Alliance
