Dear Friends,

In order to continue providing you with useful and timely constituent services, I want to make you aware of several upcoming events occurring in our district over the next two months. If you have any questions regarding these events, please give my office a call.

As always, it is an honor to serve you. My district staff is here to assist with any federal issue you might have, including passports, Medicare, veterans' benefits and more. Please don't hesitate to contact our office if there's anything we can do for you.

Quigley & Fritchey Offer Senior Property Tax Bill Assistance

Where: District Office of Congressman Mike Quigley (3742 W. Irving Park Rd.)

When: Friday, March 9th from 1:00pm to 4:00pm

According to State law, seniors must re-apply for property tax exemptions every year, and the March 28th deadline is fast approaching. While property taxes are not administered by the federal government, we're always looking for ways to make government services more accessible to you. Along with our staff, Commissioner Fritchey and Assessor Berrios' team will also be on hand to assist. Click here for a list of materials to bring.

Law Enforcement Hockey Classic

Where: The Edge Ice Arena (735 E. Jefferson St., Bensenville)

When: Saturday, March 10th from 7:00pm to 10:00pm

I join Team FBI as we take on the Chicago Police Department's squad in the Law Enforcement Classic. The event supports Honor Flight Chicago's meaningful work to bring WWII vets to the Washington memorial in their honor. I hope you'll make it out to support a great cause!

Mental Health Forum on Suicide Prevention

Where: Adler School of Professional Psychology, Community Hall (17 N. Dearborn St.)

When: Wednesday, March 14th from 10:00am to 11:30am 

Suicide rates are the highest they've been in 15 years, and suicide is currently the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. Among those who die by suicide, 90% had a treatable psychiatric disorder at time of their death. Join us for a community conversation hosted by our office in conjunction with Congressman Danny K. Davis.

Non-Profit Grants Workshop

Where: Chicago Public Library, Austin-Irving Branch (6100 W. Irving Park Rd.)

When: Wednesday, March 21st from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Finding sources of funding as a smaller nonprofit in this new environment can often be bewildering, maze-like, and overwhelming. Experts at our grants workshop will share tips and ideas for navigating public and private funding as well as the nuts and bolts of getting your application into shape and into contention for a grant.

Guests include: City of Chicago Office of Tourism and Culture, Illinois Arts Council, Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity, and Donors Forum
