Chicagoist: Riot Fest’s Michael Petryshyn Talks Launch Of Riot Fest Foundation
From the article:
Earlier today Riot Fest told us that the clean-up and repair of Humboldt Park to counter damage done due to crowds and rain during this year’s fest was completed. According to the their press release Riot Fest says, “Grounds crew managers reported that all concerns raised by the Chicago Parks Department have been addressed.”
But this wasn’t the biggest Riot Fest news of the day. That honor was reserved for the announcement that they are launching a not-for-profit arm focused on charitable work, The Riot Fest Foundation. Riot Fest founder Michael Petryshyn took some time out of what has certainly been a big day for the Fest to answer a few questions about this news and the Fest’s involvement with the 26th Ward Turkey Drive, now the largest turkey drive in Chicago.
