Chicago Tribune: Chi-Town Jazz Festival Fights Hunger Through Music

Catholic Charities – Media Alert

Father John Moulder and acclaimed jazz mandolin player Don Stiernberg will treat Catholic Charities homeless supper guests to an hour-long evening jazz concert on March 3. The special concert is a preview of shows that will be performed throughout Chicago March 4 – 8 as part of the 6th Annual Chi-Town Jazz Festival to raise funds for hunger-relief programs in the Chicago area, including for Catholic Charities network of 9 food pantries. In addition to the concert, Jazz Fest volunteers and supports will prepare and serve dinner to the 130 guests at the evening supper program.

Each day, 1 in 6 Chicagoans struggles with food insecurity and goes to bed hungry. The 6th Annual Chi-Town Jazz Festival will bring together music lovers from across the area to support hunger relief efforts. The festival features well-known local acts who donate their time at donated jazz and music venue spaces from Evanston to Hyde Park. To date, $132,000 has been raised to support hunger relief efforts in the Chicago area. More information and a complete schedule of performances can be found at chitownjazzfestival.org.
