Lakeshore Participates in Their Fourth Consecutive St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Lakeshore Participates in Their Fourth Consecutive St. Patrick’s Day Parade

On Saturday, March 17, 2018, Lakeshore was proud to participate in our fourth consecutive St. Patrick’s Day parade! With 65 Lakeshore employees, family and friends walking alongside the Lakeshore banner and truck, this was the biggest parade participation turnout to date. This was the 62nd annual St. Patrick’s Day parade in Chicago and Lakeshore passed out Lakeshore-branded shamrock beads to a projected 800,000 people in the crowd and was televised on ABC 7.

The tradition of participating in parades throughout the Chicagoland community is one of Lakeshore’s many ways of being involved in the communities we service. Over the years, Lakeshore has taken part in the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day parade, McDonald’s® Thanksgiving parade in Chicago, Chicago Pride parade and several of the Chicagoland Fourth of July parades including Morton Grove, Skokie and Deerfield.

These parades are a fun way to connect with Chicagoland and are events that will continue to be a tradition that is close to the Lakeshore family’s heart.

The next events that Lakeshore will be participating in is the Fourth of July parades and raising money for the Lupus Society of Illinois. Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack healthy cells. Anyone can be impacted by Lupus but it predominately affects women, and there is currently no cure.

There are four Lupus Society of Illinois walks starting in May throughout Chicagoland and the Lakeshore team will be participating in the last walk this September at Lincoln Park. Several months before the walk, Lakeshore will fundraise money for the cause through a raffle, with over 30 possible prizes. To learn more about Lupus and other Lakeshore events follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and LinkedIn.
