When it comes to winning the $25,000 challenge grant for Streetsblog Chicago from The Chicago Community Trust, failure is not an option. We must raise $50,000 by Saturday, July 1, at midnight and win that grant, because we need that funding to keep publishing into 2018 and beyond.

Streetsblog sponsors, advertisers, and, especially, readers like you have come out of the woodwork to help -- we've raised $39,277 so far. Still, it's going to be a challenge to raise the last $10,723 within the next 11 days, but I'm confident we will do this one way or another -- a few sponsorship and advertising leads are still in the mix, and we're exploring other possibilities. Still we're going to need more help from readers over the next day and a half.

Here's a great reason to donate at the $100 level or beyond. We just booked our reader appreciation party next month at Revolution Brewing's Kedzie Avenue taproom (not to be confused with their Milwaukee Avenue brewpub). All Streetsblog readers are cordially invited to this shindig, but those who have given a Benjamin or more will receive a ticket for a free drink, courtesy of our friends at RevBrew. Here's the skinny:

$100+ donors are also eligible for a free copy of my book “Bars Across America,” so be sure to hit me up at the party for your copy.

Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting Streetsblog Chicago. See you in two weeks at RevBrew!
