On Sept. 9, the Evanston Township High School Boosters hosted its Fifth Annual Boosterpalooza on the rooftop of the Sherman Plaza Garage.  Nearly 700 community members came out on a beautiful evening to connect with old and new friends, listen to live music, and enjoy food and drink from local restaurants while supporting ETHS.

“It’s heartwarming to see parents, teachers, club leaders and coaches come together every year for our kids,” said Boosterpalooza Chair Holly Brady. “The fifth anniversary was a real milestone and our hope is that this great tradition will continue for many years.”

The event raised more than $85,000, which will go to support ETHS extra-curricular activities including the fine arts, after-school clubs, and team sports.
