Junteenth Highlights
The Quad County African American Chamber of Commerce  had a great time supporting  (2) annual Juneteenth celebration events hosted by our members Rickey Rogers of The African American Men Of Unity in Aurora & Lawrence Cooper of Coop's Den in Bolingbrook while connecting with small business owners & families within our communities we serve. 
Both events were well attended & provided a positive and peaceful forum for the community's residents to educate, empower and encourage.
This multicultural celebration included live entertainment, food, vendor booths, community & educational resources, as well games and activities for our our youth & adults in attendance. Be sure to mark your calendars for next year to attend!
What is Juneteenth? 
Juneteenth , also known as  Juneteenth  Independence Day or Freedom Day, is a holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, and more generally the emancipation of African-American slaves throughout the Confederate South.

At the Juneteenth events, QCAACC gave business owners an opportunity to enter their business card for a chance to win a $25 gift card.
