Septemberfest is a unique event as it honors Bloomingdale’s past, present and future. The best demonstration of our commitment to the future is the Bloomingdale Scholarship Competition. Started in 1987 with a single award of $400.00 to a young Bloomingdale resident, the program has grown to six and eight scholarships per year. It is open to both young men and women between the ages of 16 and 20 who are residents of incorporated Bloomingdale. This is a way for you, as a business, to show that these young adults are important and deserve support. Donations to the Joe Draghi Scholarship Fund would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for considering this request. http://www.vil.bloomingdale.il.us/septemberfest

When not decorated for Oktoberfest, Park Grill's outdoor venue is the largest alfresco dining experience in the city. The 350-seat outdoor dining area is located at the entrance of Millennium Park and just steps away from world-renowned Michigan Ave.
Now marking its inaugural year at Millennium Park, Park Grill is enjoying strong marks for its entry into the city's vibrant restaurant scene. In May, Chicago Magazine named Park Grill to its list of "Best New Restaurants." In July, Zagat's Chicago Restaurant Guide ranked Park Grill in the shortlist of its 'top newcomers' category.
"We want our customers to enjoy food and entertainment that is always seasonal, served up in an atmosphere, charm, and flair that is unmatched in Chicago," said Jane Rodriguez, Park Grill's Director of Marketing. "The Park Grill team looks forward to bringing back the Oktoberfest celebrations for many years to come."
