CTJF Board Member Eileen Lerum presents our check from this year’s Festival to Catholic Charities.

The Chi-Town Jazz Festival has raised over $250,000 to date for hunger relief in our community. Money is donated to various nonprofits working in the field. Here CTJF Board member Eileen Lerum presents our check for over $10,000 of this year’s receipts to Msgr. Michael M. Boland, Administrator, President and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Chicago, and Kathy Donahue, Director of Programs. They thanked us and we are passing that thanks along to all the musicians who donated their talent and  time, to the venues that donated their space, and to all the jazz fans and sponsors who helped us reach our goals.
