Here is what Sharing Notes had to say
Dear Summer Salon Concert Attendees:
Thanks to all of you for spending your Friday evening with us in Chief O'Neill's beautiful beer garden. What a night to remember! We are pleased to announce that we raised a total of $7,935 from the event, which would not have been possible without all of you.
Below are some pictures from the evening!

The French word "salon" literally means "large room" and where better than the beer garden at Chief O'Neill's! The Summer Salon brings the audience and musicians together and creates a special intimate, engaging atmosphere in which to enjoy and share music, all combined with a philanthropic intent to support the Sharing Notes.
Executive Director, Liz Burgess, says, "Sharing Notes is doing what we do best... bringing the joy and comfort of live music directly to the people."
The Summer Salon Concert raised funds for Sharing Notes, a non-profit whose mission is improving quality of life for Chicago hospital patients through intimate, engaging and uplifting live musical performances. When Covid-19 halted all hospital volunteer programs, Sharing Notes adapted to performing live, virtual bedside concerts 24/7 for patients in Chicagoland hospitals.
