Sweet Beginnings
    

The WIN Candy Gala will benefit Sweet Beginnings, founded by Brenda Palms Barber who spoke at the WIN Black History Month panel. Sweet Beginnings teaches formerly incarcerated individuals to harvest honey and make skincare and bath products sold at Whole Foods and elsewhere.

Sweet Beginnings is a wholly owned subsidiary of the North Lawndale Employment Network and offers full-time transitional jobs for formerly incarcerated individuals and others with significant barriers to employment in a green industry – the production and sales of all-natural skin care products featuring its own urban honey. Sweet Beginnings workers care for the bees and hives, harvest honey, make beeline® products, package and ship products, track inventory, fill product orders, and sell at retail outlets and special events. These training and work experience modalities transfer to market positions in manufacturing, food service, distribution, warehousing, hospitality, customer service, and more. The recidivism rate for former Sweet Beginnings employees is below 4%, compared to the national average of 65% and the Illinois average of 55%.

Party in a Candy Store!
    
Still a local independent business, Candyality has opened a third store with an over 6000sq ft Mega store at the world famous Water Tower Place Mall. Filled with thousands of candies, chocolates, and everything sweet, this gigantic space also boasts a candy museum dubbed “Life is Sweet” as well as an event space for individuals and groups to rent. A “must see” to put on your list and to tell your friends and friends of friends about. The Water Tower store will no doubt be a top tourist attraction in the city!
