Don’t miss Illinois State’s cure for the winter blues while giving back to the local community at the same time! The Water Works Indoor Pool Party is a splashing good time for alumni, family, and friends of all ages at an inexpensive price.

The Chicago area alumni networks are also partnering with the Greater Chicago Food Depository (GCFD) to host a food drive during the pool party. Hunger affects people everywhere from the city to the suburbs and the GCFD distributes the equivalent of 160,000 meals a day! Make an impact by bringing nonperishable donations to the party. The most needed items are peanut butter, canned beans, canned chili, canned soup, canned stew, canned fruit, canned vegetables, and canned fish.

When: 6–9 p.m. Saturday, January 28
Where: Water Works Indoor Water Park, 505 North Springinsguth Road, Schaumburg

All guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Due to park rules, all attendees must register, even if they do not plan to swim. Food will be available for purchase at the concession stand. Proper bathing suit attire is required.

Cost is $4 per person. Children 2 and under get in free. Register online by January 23 or by calling Alumni Relations at (309) 438-2586 or (800) 366-4478. Advance registration is required. Please call in registrations for groups of six or more.
