With more than 21,000 Illinois State young alumni living in the Chicagoland area, imagine how much good can come from giving back to the community. Now’s the chance to team up with fellow Redbirds for a good cause, all while having fun on a Friday night!

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is looking for volunteers to support its 8th annual Festiv-Ale on Friday, September 18. The event brings together beer enthusiasts to sample handcrafted, high-end beers from the Midwest’s finest brewers while sampling food from outstanding Chicagoland restaurants.

Volunteers are needed to assist with event setup (noon–5 p.m.), activities throughout the event (5–10 p.m.) such as managing the registration table, selling raffle tickets, security, supporting vendors and more, and to wrap up the evening (8–11 p.m.) with auction running and cleanup.

When: Friday, September 18
Where: Block Thirty Seven, 108 North State Street, Chicago

Those interested in participating can reserve their volunteer time with Lindsay Vahl, associate director of Alumni Relations, no later than August 28.
