Family Ideas Network for Down Syndrome (FINDS)
FINDS Parents Night Out
Saturday February 9, 2019
7:00 pm tp 9:30 pm
Black bear Bistro - Private Dining Room

We are thrilled to bring back our Parent's Night Out.  
We will be dining at the Black bear Bistro in Historic Downtown Algonquin.

Chef Santiago is creating a special four-course menu for us including:
* Starting bites to awaken your Appetite
* Soup or Salad
* A variety of Intriguing Entree's
* Bread Pudding or Chocolate Mousse.

A massage therapist will be onsite providing chair massages throughout the evening.  Chair massages will be 10 minutes in duration and we only have time for 15 of them so they will be first RSVP-ed, first served.

The cost of this amazing evening is only $25 per person or $50 per couple.  The cost includes dinner, soft drinks, coffee, tea, tax & tip.  FINDS is picking up the rest of the balance.

We must have your RSVP by February 1 as we need to get counts to the chef.  We only have capacity for 20 people so get your RSVP in.

RSVP below using PayPal.

RSVP No later than Feb 1, 2019
Registration is closed now.

FINDS needs help!

FINDS has been serving the McHenry County area for nearly 40 years and we are a completely volunteer run organization.  Since we are run by passionate parents and family members of individuals with DS, we are always looking for other passionate family members to help out.  The existing board has been serving for far longer than our charter requires and we would love to pass the torch to some other wonderful people.  Of course, we are willing to stay and help, but we need new ideas and new energy to drive this bus.

If you would like to volunteer and spend some time helping plan events, we really could use your help.  Contact Michael Fisher ( to discuss how you can help make a difference in the lives of these wonderful people with Down Syndrome and their families.

Whether you would like to serve on the board or just help with events and volunteering, please contact us.
