ROCKFORD — A new event featuring live music, food, outdoor movies and more will begin Friday at Lino’s Restaurant and continue every other Friday for four weeks.
Each week, the proceeds from sales made at the event will support a local nonprofit. Admission to the event is free.
“I’m so proud to have worked with Charlie Schweinler and Korissa Steger at Lino’s to offer this four-part Forward for Fun initiative in the 14th Ward,” Bonne said. “Four Fridays in the 14th Ward also supports local nonprofits. I hope we get a large turnout for each of our four events.”

Every Friday, the event will go from 5:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. and follow a predetermined theme, with the first occasion this Friday being Rockford Peaches night.
“This is a fun, summer event for all ages to come together and celebrate our community,” Schweinler said. “Nonprofits are essential in building healthy communities, and we would love the opportunity to shine a light on local nonprofits and their vital impact on our beloved community.”
