Looking for a unique holiday gift? How about something that shows your love and support for Palatine that will also benefit District 15?
The District 15 Educational Foundation is selling its very own Palatine-opoly board game.
Just like the classic version of the game, players can purchase real estate as they make their way around the board. But instead of buying Boardwalk and Park Place, Palatine businesses, landmarks and organizations fill the spaces.
Foundation board member Jennifer DeFranco got the idea while visiting her parents downstate last year. Her father, a business owner, took part in the city's Alton-opoly, according to a press release.
Each game can be purchased for $25 with cash, check or credit card. Quantities are limited so don’t delay purchasing your copy of the game.
Proceeds benefit the District 15 Educational Foundation, which runs a mini-grant program for teachers to enhance and supplement the educational experience of the students.
To purchase your copy of the game, call the foundation at (847) 963-3160 or stop by the District 15 administration office at 580 N. First Bank Dr., in Palatine, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Copies of the game can also be purchased at the following sponsor locations:Palatine Bank and Trust
