  • Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival
    The soft glow of 30,919 carved pumpkins lit up the night sky on Saturday, October 22, 2011—the night the town of Highwood set the Guinness world record for most jack-o’-lanterns lit in one location. And this year should be no different. The three-day Great Highwood Pumpkin Festival, which has gained coverage from The Rosie Show and Trib Local, invites guests from all over the country to contribute to its wall of carved pumpkins, an experience that will be captured by HGTV’s “Pumpkin Wars”. Patrons can decorate prescooped pumpkins at the designated carving stations (or bring their own precarved candidate) as they enjoy a weekend of live music on multiple stages, treats from local vendors, a gourmet farmers’ market on Saturday, hayrides, and a New Orleans–inspired night parade. Participants can even test out their newly carved pumpkin sneakers during the festival’s 5K run, which raises funds and awareness for the Leukemia Research Foundation. The festival culminates with the lighting of the wall of jack-o’-lanterns at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and, when all is said and done, pumpkins won’t be left in the dark as their owners are encouraged to take their record-breaking masterpieces home with them.

  • CHERUBS
    CHERUBS has one goal: to help families affected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). By researching and raising awareness for this rare birth defect, CHERUBS's volunteers, as well as its board of CDH survivors, parents, grandparents, doctors, and nurses, help search for its cause, prevention, and best treatments while supporting families dealing with CDH. Ultimately, the organization strives to provide the most accurate, timely information possible for parents so they can make educated decisions for their babies. The CHERUBS H.O.P.E. (Helping Other Parents Expecting) tote-bag program, meanwhile, collects donated care items along with information for those who are expecting babies with CDH or who already have a hospitalized infant. In 2012, CHERUBS distributed more than 300 such totes to its members, which include more than 4,000 families in all 50 states and more than 60 countries.

  • Autism Speaks Two
    The organizers of Double Denim Bar Crawl have two goals: raise awareness of autism and have fun doing it. Their yearly event crawls through historic Wrigleyville, which take place during Austism Awareness Month, gather revelers suited up from head to toe in denim jeans, jackets, and shirts to let loose amid dance-offs, and debates on the cultural degradation caused by khaki. Contests including kiddie-cocktail races and a rock-paper-scissors tournament complement prizes for best and worst double denim, denim princess, and being a HugeParty. Celebrants can feel good about every sudsy libation they imbibe, too, since profits of the crawl go to Autism Speaks to Young Professionals (AS2YP), an organization dedicated to funding autism research, spreading awareness, and advocating for the individuals and families affected by autism.
