Ghetto Karts 4th of July Fundraiser

Ghetto Karts is doing it again this year, and we need your help to make it all happen!!!

The costs of last year's event were great and we didn't receive enough in donations to offset costs by a long shot.  We'd like to be over the top this year to offer money to the bands and/or pay back the people that end up footing the bill.  Some people spent a great some of money to make it happen last year, generously.  We'd like to keep the burden off of them.  If we raise enough to go over, we'll put it to a vote on the GHETTO KARTS facebook group as to which charity receives the extra money! 

Please repost this and share with your friends that might be able to make it out to the Ghetto Karts 4th of July event or might be interested in donating to the event.  It happens every year in Garfield Park and is a free event with go karts, bands, food and a fireworks display.  It's always a blast!


Also, there's a Memorial Day event at Livewire Lounge in Chicago if you'd like to attend!   Bands, food, full bar, you name it!  Small cover charge at the door goes towards funding the Ghetto Karts 4th of July event.

"Some of the bands scheduled to perform at this year's Ghetto Karts bash will be donating their time to the fundraiser in different ways, so it should prove to be a good fundraiser and great party to boot!

BBQ by Little Jon's Smokehouse (Jon of Wild Blue Angels)
Live Music by Grasshammer and Rotten Finko & The Convicts
