The O’Neill PTA recently held the first ever Sip-N-Stroll, sponsored by the Community Bank of Downers Grove. One hundred people strolled downtown Downers Grove sampling donated libations and local fare from Another Round, Ballydoyle, Caribbean Corner, Cellar Door, Giordano’s, Mia’s Cantina and RBK American Grill. The groups voted the chicken and beef flautas from Mia’s Cantina as the Best Appetizer. The event raised $5,500 through silent auction items donated from 80 local businesses and cash donations. The profits will be used to support O’Neill’s PTA programs including Snowflake, VIP Day, school musical, PTA Reflections art program, Author’s Fest, school gifts, staff appreciation and several others.
