Tinley Park's event, which is the local component of a national crime, drug and violence prevention and awareness program, was one of only three towns from Illinois to win in its category, the release stated.
“This event is very important to the community and to our staff and volunteers, who work hard to organize it,” Mayor Ed Zabrocki stated in the release. “We are very proud of the successful results.”
The village's 2013 National Night Out is set to run from 5 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 6, in Zabrocki Plaza.
