Thanks so much for making the “Back the Bowl Bash” such a success! It was great to gather for live performances in Wilmette’s very own Wallace Bowl while contributing essential funds for its preservation.

There’s much more work to be done, and we appreciate how important your contributions are to the overall fundraising effort for the Bowl’s restoration. Please continue to check back for projects updates and reach out to us through the Contact Form, if you’d like to learn more.

Together, we are able to raise important funds to support the Ouilmette Foundation’s work, including the preservation of Wallace Bowl and the WPD Scholarship fund, and much-needed funds for ALS research.

We’ll have a date for 2025’s lucky WOW Swim #7 very soon and hope to welcome even more terrific athletes and spectators.
