Representatives of the charities receiving money raised by the Festival, Care for Real and Catholic Charities, will also be on hand to talk about how the Chi-Town Jazz Festival helps them provide their greatly needed services to feed the hungry in the Chicago area. As a bonus, there will be a photography exhibit with prints for sale of past Festivals.
