Pasta & Ponies!
pasta-extravaganzaSave the date: Our annual Pasta Extravaganza and Night at the Races is scheduled for 6 pm on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at the Orland Chateau in Orland Park. This family-friendly event draws a big crowd each year and is a major fundraising activity for Together We Cope.

     Children love the great variety of food, choosing from pasta, pizza, meat and sandwich entrees all donated by dozens of area restaurants that support TWC’s work in the region. Adults enjoy the “fun money” gambling on pre-recorded horse races and using the “fun winnings” to take chances on beautiful gift baskets.
     “People love Pasta Extravaganza because there’s something for everyone,” said Tina Kessens of the agency’s fundraising department. “Everybody has a good time, with good food and good company. It’s a chance for families to be together in a fun atmosphere.”     
     Tickets for the all-you-can-eat dinner are a great deal at $25 for adults and $5 for children ages 3 to 12. Further information is at 708-263-0302, Ext. 6107.

Run for The Hub
hub-5k-graphicProceeds from the 2016 Hub 5k Run/Walk to Benefit Homelessness will support four south suburban agencies in Chicago’s southern suburbs that provide basic human needs to families in crisis, including Together We Cope.

     The run on Saturday, Sept. 24 at Bicentennial Park in Olympia Fields will benefit Ford Heights Community Service Organization, Respond Now, South Suburban PADS and TWC. They form The Hub, a network of agencies and individuals created to help people cope with life-changing events that come with a housing crisis. Obtaining shelter is a major goal of The Hub, followed by urgent needs such as food, clothing, legal assistance, medical help, job readiness and job retraining, and professional services like counseling and aid in applying for public benefits.
     People in need of assistance can contact The Hub at www.findhelpsouthcook.org and be referred to appropriate agencies and individuals in their neighborhood who have agreed to help those in crisis.
     Further information on The Hub 5k event is at www.signmeup.com/115238.

We get 4 stars again

Once again, we got high marks for strong financial health, and commitment to accountability and transparency. At Together We Cope, fully 92 cents of every dollar received goes back into client services. Four stars is the highest rating given by Charity Navigator.
Michael Thatcher, president and CEO of Charity Navigator, said: “Together We Cope’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public. Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. Based on this rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Together We Cope.”
