Garden Get Together

Join ORT Chicago for happy hour in your own backyard!

Relax, reconnect, and learn something you may not know about ORT.

Spend an hour with friends from across the Chicago region via Zoom! Have a seat in your backyard, on your porch, or wherever you can get comfortable and enjoy a cool drink while you reconnect.

This is also a unique opportunity to learn about a piece of ORT’s work you may not be familiar with. We will be joined by Celeste Angus, World ORT Director of International Cooperation (IC). ORT’s IC work supports economic and social development in underserved communities around the world through local vocational training and technical assistance.
