This spring marks two important milestones for the Evanston RoundTable – 25 years ago we published our first newspaper, and three years ago we officially rebooted as a nonprofit news outlet. We hope you’ll join us starting 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, to support our work – and lift a glass to celebrate these two important anniversaries!
Every morning, our reporters bring you the latest news and information in Evanston: who’s who in the recent elections, which restaurants and businesses are opening (and closing), what the schools are doing and how the City Council just voted.
If you appreciate the RoundTable’s journalism and what it means for the Evanston community, please join us for an evening of lively music, good conversation and support for local journalism. Your support is vital in keeping local journalism alive and the RoundTable reporting.
We’ll kick off our Spring fundraising drive with out News and Brews party at Sketchbook Brewing Co., 821 Chicago Ave. in Evanston.
Tickets include two drinks and light refreshments. The event will feature brief remarks by Charles Whitaker, dean of the Northwestern University Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications. Dean Whitaker serves on the RoundTable’s board of directors.
We’ll also celebrate with some live music, featuring Reva Goodman, one of Chicago’s best-known country singers. Reva fronts Diamondback, the popular Chicago-based country music band. At News and Brews, she’ll be accompanied by the RoundTable’s own Mark Miller, a guitar and banjo player who also has been known to engage in journalism from time to time.
The evening will also provide a great opportunity to meet the RoundTable editors, writers and other contributors who bring you the news every day, along with members of our board and advisory committee.
Here’s a huge thanks to our friends at Sketchbook, our event sponsors!
