In an article from Reel Chicago, Rich Stoddart, CEO of Leo Burnett North America and long-time Off the StreetClub board member shared: “There are two very different Chicago’s that children can grow up in today. There is the world-class, opportunity-filled Chicago that many of us have been fortunate to give to our own kids. We dream of a Chicago in which every single child has the same fundamental rights: to find joy, to harness their own brilliance, to hold on to their innocence just a little bit longer, to be who they are without fear of what danger may lurk around them.” Read the full article HERE!

The Battle of Hope is an annual Chicago Advertising Agency Battle of the Bands to benefit the Off The Street Club. It was started in 2013 by Digitas with inspiration from the New York City Advertising Week Battle of the Bands.

OFF THE STREET CLUB provides kids ages 4-18 on the city’s West side a safe place to go after school offering a secure environment for the next generation to grow up. Chicago Ad community has been long time supporters of the club and wants to further support their great programs with this event that brings some spirited competition and camaraderie among Chicago’s advertising agencies!
