My name is Jon Landan (Some of you may know me as one of The #LandanTwins :)) & I just wanted to share with you an initiative that is near & dear to my heart Chicago Gateway Green! I have been involved with this charity for 15 years & have done everything from stuffing goody bags at Green Tie Ball, to chairing Green Tie Ball multiple times to now serving on The Board Of Directors of Chicago Gateway Green!

Our mission is simple & that is we are a non-profit organization dedicated to greening and beautifying Chicago’s expressways, gateways & neighborhoods! We are the 1st thing & last thing that Chicagoans & visitors see when they enter and leave our city & ultimately were one of the 1st #Greening initiatives in the country!

This Thursday we are having our 9th annual Gaming-for-Green & whether you like to play poker or party this is one of the #BEST charities of the summer! Please join me & Chicago to help support this great cause, all info is below & remember the official after-party is at The Underground. Thanks so much as always, buy your tickets now & see you all there!
