Festa Parties, a Chicago-based event planning company known for its festive pub crawl events including TBOX, their popular Twelve Bars of Xmas Pub Crawl in Wrigleyville, has held its 5th consecutive “BYOC” - Bring Your Own Cereal – party this past Thursday, June 13th at DS Tequila in the Boystown neighborhood of Chicago. They were excited to bring the event to DS Tequila and Christopher Festa, the owner and founder of Festa Parties, and the attendees tallied a total of 150 boxes of cereal at the party, which brings them to their 1000th box of cereal donated to the Lakeview Food Pantry since January of 2013.
The BYOC party participants were able to enjoy some laughter and great food among other pub crawl enthusiasts, and as a thank you for donating, were given free tickets to Festa’s next pub crawl, their 2nd Annual Everyone Gets Lei’s Hawaiian Themed Pub-Crawl taking place on Saturday, August 24th in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.
Christopher Festa and Festa Parties are excited to be able to donate over 1000 boxes of cereal to the Lakeview Food Pantry and are eager to donate through their BYOC Parties every month. Through BYOC they are able to continued the long loved tradition of cereal and all things cereal related, and Festa Parties’ devotion to community service.
