Throw a Few Pennies into the Fountain....

Buckingham Fountain was shut down last month to undergo a major restoration effort. Parkways Foundation, whose mission is to help raise private funds for projects encompassed by the Chicago Park District, has orchestrated a donation campaign to assist with the cost of repairs and restoration via Donations can be accepted for general repairs, or for some of the fountain's more specific embellishments: the cattails and lilies in the lower basin, for example, or a planter in Buckingham Plaza.
