MAA Winter Party 2019

Join us at Timothy O’Toole’s in Libertyville on Thursday, February 28 for the Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan Alumni Association (MAA) Winter Party 2019. We’ll have loads of food and fun, including some special drinks named for our beloved camp in the Northwoods! Get ready for an action-packed, auction-packed evening. Just a few of the exciting events:

  • Pre-event open house and refreshments at the NEW Kasperson Center for Scouting at Morrison Park, at 850 Forest Edge Drive, Vernon Hills from 4:00 – 5:30
  • Guest Speaker, our very own MSR staff alumnus, Eric Lillstrom, who will be sharing his high adventure activities and world travels.
  • Silent and Live Auctions with cool memorabilia, adventure opportunities, sports tickets, and much more!
  • Food, Fun, Fellowship!
  • Stay tuned, as we’ll have more information to follow, including our efforts to provide a LIVE VIDEO FEED for our friends who can’t attend.

Auction: We are looking for auction items to help raise money to support the MAA and their efforts to continually improve our camp property at Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan and support programs there which positively impact the camping experience for our Scouts. If you have an item or service you’d like to donate for our auction, please contact us below.

Tickets are $40/person. You can register here.

Parking is available a block away in the North Garage, located at the southeast corner of Brainerd Avenue and Lake Streets. The structure provides FREE 4-HOUR customer parking on ground floor and upper levels. Street parking is often congested. There is also a small lot behind Timothy O’Toole’s. We recommend the following:

By car, truck or motorcycle: Park in the North Garage

By train: Take the Milwaukee North Line to Libertyville (four minute walk to Timothy O’Toole’s)

By rideshare: It’s pretty easy to find an Uber or Lyft driver in the area, or use your favorite ride-share company.

Carpool: Ride on over with a few of your friends. One of them is sure to volunteer as the designated driver.

Questions? Contact Mark Hobson, our 2019 Winter Party Chair, or Stephanie Brooks (847.748.9152), at the council office.
