Autumn in the Park Festival Donations

Over the past couple of years, tip jars have been available at Autumn in the Park for any festival guests interested in leaving a donation. These funds have been sent to PAWS Animal Shelter, and this year festival guests were especially generous. The Village of Palos Park was pleased to send over $800 in generous donations from festival attendees. It is our pleasure to support PAWS and their efforts to care for animals and place them in loving homes. Thank you to everyone who was able to contribute.
