BRIDGEPORT — Now in its 10th year, the Chicago Youth Center Fellowship House's big Chicago White Sox outing serves as one of the group's main fundraisers.
Tickets are $30 each and include admission to the July 18 ballgame versus the Houston Astros and the pre-game tailgate party featuring a Mexican food buffet, drinks and raffles.
Founded in 1895 by the All Souls Unitarian Church, Fellowship House is considered among the oldest of the city's settlement houses, which offered classes, social and recreational programs for working class and poor immigrants.
The group later linked up with Chicago Youth Centers, an amalgamation of boys and girls clubs founded by a pair of city businessmen in the 1950s.
Fellowship House became part of Chicago Youth Centers sometime around 1960, and today it continues offering a range of kid-focused programming and activities at its locations in Bridgeport, Grand Boulevard, Bronzeville, Humboldt Park, North Lawndale, South Shore, Riverdale, Altgeld Gardens and Roseland.
