Gary Longstein was proud to present $500 to the Hemingway Foundation's President John Berry as part of his Give Back to the Community initiative started last year by his Agency. "This year marks the 100 year anniversary of Mr. Hemingway's graduation from OPRF High and we are proud to support the Graduation Party being hosted by the Hemingway Foundation on June 17th Mr. Longstein said.  "It is important to us, as residents and business owners here in Oak Park to identify and support important organizations like the Hemingway Foundation, a cornerstone of our community heritage."

Mr. Longstein and his Allstate office has been at his location on Chicago Ave. next to the iconic Peterson's Ice Cream since 2009.  Last year he, along with Allstate, donated close to $2,000 to Wonder Works Children's Museum in Oak Park and has plans to work with other community organizations in the coming years.
