Reserve your ticket for the 2019 Fall Fundraiser today

Join us for comedy and cocktails.

We are thrilled to announce that Chicago comedian and storyteller, Tekki Lomnicki, will perform. A longtime friend of Access Living, Tekki is donating her time in honor of our late founder, Marca Bristo, and will perform “Projections,” a hilarious and thought-provoking journey through her own misconceptions and life with a disability.

This graphic advertises the 2019 fall fundraiser. It reads 'Comedy & Cocktails, featuring comedy musings by Tekki Lomnicki."
Tekki Lomnicki works to shatter the barriers between the disabled and abled worlds through the transformative power of personal story.
