BMO Harris Bank invited Chicagoans to make a wish April 13 when it introduced the 17-foot BMO200 digital fountain inside The Shops at North Bridge (520 N. Michigan). Until June, visitors can make their own wishes by choosing a category, typing out a wish and “tossing” a virtual coin with a flick on a phone screen, or make wishes online at Bmo200.com through the end of the year. More than 500 local organizations will receive or have already received donations that will total $11.2 million in 2017 — including the Chicago Public Library’s YOUmedia and Chicago Public School’s CPS SCORE! — as part of the bank’s 200th anniversary celebration.
