To the Editor:
The Education Foundation of District 58 partnered with the Tivoli Theatre to host Big Head Todd on April 25. The show raised $25,000 for the foundation, and we are so grateful to the numerous individuals and local businesses whose partnership and generosity made this fantastic event possible. The concert not only raised a significant amount of money for our organization and the students it supports, it also provided the Downers Grove community with top quality entertainment.
In support of the Big Head Todd concert, which was a tremendous success, we would like to thank the Johnson family of Classic Cinemas for donating the use of the historic Tivoli Theatre; Lemon Tree Grocers for hosting a special pre-concert dinner for our Gold Package ticket holders; Community Bank of Downers Grove; Evelyn Jane Boutique; Charlie and Grace; and Maximum Printing and Graphics.
We also want to thank the volunteers for their time and support, as well as the residents and families who attended. Your support of our programs is very much appreciated!
