The RSVP/donation link for the POLO Guys Day Out is live! The dads will be providing the food and cooking lunch for the Ronald McDonald House in downtown Chicago. (If you've never volunteered here, it's an amazing opportunity!) To sign up to volunteer or donate supplies, visit our sign up at www.SignUpGenius.com/go/4090D4BABA923A3F49-polo5. Even if you can't attend, we need donations too! We will be making lunch for 60+ people staying at the house. We hope you can join to give back to the community.  If you cannot attend the event on August 3 but would still like to donate, please let me know and I can arrange to pick up the items from you.


Informal playdate after church -- Sunday, July 22 -- Join POLO families after the 9 am Mass on July 22 on the school playground for an hour. No need to RSVP, just show up to burn some energy after church and chat with other families. We'll wrap up a few minutes before 11 am so we don't disturb the Mass - if the windows are open, the noise travels into the church. Weather pending


POLO Playdate -- Thursday, July 26 at 10:00 am -- Field Park, 935 Woodbine Ave.). Join us at Field Park for fun at the playground and tot lot, and cool off in the splash pad. RSVP to Katie at Katie.r.bernhard@gmail.com


Moms Night Out/Fundraiser - Tuesday, July 31 from 7:00 pm -- 16 Suitcases. Come enjoy a night out - the store will be ours to browse, try on and buy some of this season's cutest clothes while you sip some champagne. And everyone will get 20% off their purchase for the evening! There are a limited number of spots so please RSVP to this email if you would like to attend. Suggested donation of $5 for the evening to add to our extremely low POLO fund for upcoming family events!


Making Summer Lunches -- Friday, August 3 at 10:30 am -- 716 Clinton Ave. I've created a sign-up for donations of the items needed for the lunches. If you cannot attend the event on August 3 but would still like to donate, please let me know and I can arrange to pick up the items from you.
