Movie in the Park Featuring Wall-E

Join Buena Park Neighbors for our next Summer Movie in the Park featuring the Pixar film, WALL-E!

The last robot left on Earth spends his days tidying up the planet, one piece of garbage at a time. For 700 years WALL-E has developed a personality, and he’s more than a little lonely. Then he spots EVE (Elissa Knight), a sleek and shapely probe sent back to Earth on a scanning mission. Smitten WALL-E embarks on his greatest adventure yet when he follows EVE across the galaxy.

On August 31st we will be showing WALL-E at DUSK in Buena Circle Park at the corner of Buena and Kenmore.

Bring a snack, a blanket, and the whole family!

Special thanks to our event sponsors:
Thorek Memorial Hospital
Chicago Cubs
Uptown United and Business Partners – The Chamber for Uptown

Just a friendly reminder that dogs are not allowed in the park.

Buena Park Business Spotlight: Beautycounter with Peggy Scanlan

We are excited to welcome our newest Gold Level Business Partner, Beautycounter with Peggy Scanlan, an online retailer of skincare products.

Peggy Scanlan

80% of the ingredients used in daily personal care products have never been tested for safety. Beautycounter is committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what is required by US law (the US has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938). You deserve better, and they doing something about it! Beautycounter provides a full line of safer options for skincare, makeup, haircare and sun protection for women, men and children.

A former marketing director, Peggy is currently working from home and enjoying precious time with her two-year-old, Nora. As a health coach and independent consultant with Beautycounter, Peggy enjoys helping people reduce stressors and environmental toxins, and live cleaner, happier lives.

Peggy is generously offering a free 15-minute consultation to Buena Park Neighbors Members to detox your bathroom shelves. She will take a look at what you currently use on your skin and hair each day, and can point you to resources to evaluate their ingredients and toxin levels. Whatever you are using, her hope is that you will gain deeper knowledge about what you are putting on your skin – your largest organ – each day.

To set up your free 15-minute consultation, contact Peggy today at or 312.399.8203.
