Despite its name, the Horner Park Advisory Council actually reaches far beyond that big park on the west side of the Chicago River. HPAC members also assist with Ravenswood Manor Park, the Sunken Garden and the recently-expanding Jacob Playlot. This Thursday, the busy organization is holding a mixer and fundraiser to benefit their activities.
The mixer is set for 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Thursday at The Red Lion, 4749 N. Rockwell St. and will include brandy and apéritifs donated by Schumacher Imports. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance online.
