SOAR meeting on Bertrand Goldberg's endangered Prentice Hospital tonight, Bowling for Prentice on June 6th

This evening, SOAR, Streeterville Organization of Active Residents, is holding a "community meeting regarding the deposition of the former Prentice Women's Hospital," Bertrand Goldberg's striking landmark that isn't that Northwestern is intent on grinding into dust.

If you're looking to avoid that grim scenario and you're a Streeterville resident, now is the time to be heard. You can be sure Northwestern representatives will be out in force.  The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m., tonight, May 24th, on the 44th floor of the Hancock building, 175 E. Delaware at 7:00 p.m.,.  Don't expert to get in unless you've RSVP'd, here:  rsvp@soarchicago.org.
And on June 6th, a who's who of preservation groups  including AIA Chicago, docomomo, Landmarks Illinois, the National Trust, and Preservation Chicago will be holding a Bowling for Prentice! fundraiser at 10 Pin at another Bertrand Goldberg landmark that isn't a landmark, Marina City.  Two hours of bowling with pizza, buffer and refreshments for just $35.00 ($25.00 for students with valid ID's; $35.00 for students with invalid ID's.)
