CHICAGO - Itching to escape from the city this summer? Look no further than Chicago's Lower West Side.
YETI, the brand known for their durable outdoor gear, has teamed up with a variety of nature conservation nonprofits to offer a series of short adventure films set in the wild. They will be shown together, one night only, in Pilsen.
The films feature a 260-mile canoe race across Texas, extreme big wave surfing and intense storm chasing — to name a few.
Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the nonprofits.
It’s an opportunity to get out of the city, by staying in the same seat.
"We're super lucky to have a guest appearance by legendary mountaineer and alpinist Conrad Anker. There will be a live painting by Laura Gibson and probably one of the favorite parts for a lot of people is the raffle where you can win some great YETI products," said Taylor Johns, YETI Director of Content.
The films will be presented June 30th at 7:30 p.m. at Thalia Hall, located at 1807 S. Allport Street in Chicago.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased in advance by going to www.Yeti.com.
