Scubas Holiday Benefit Concert Recap

First off I want to thank everyone who came out to our Schubas fundraiser this past Friday. Those who came out were able to see a wide variety of music and people coming together to show their support for what we do here at Cabrini Connections, Tutor/Mentor Connection. Four bands played, including 2 with direct ties to Cabrini Connections. My band, Howling Poppies, headlined and Trakan, our GIS whiz Mike's band played second to last. Everyone was in high spirits, mixing and mingling while dancing to the thumping beats of Black Collar, and the ferocious swing of the East Side Ramblers. Thanks to the generosity of everyone who gave a $30 donation to enter, we raised a good sum of money that will help us to continue and expand the work we do. We are also deeply thankful to Schubas for donating their facilities to us from 6-9pm as well as a free drink for each guest! We could not have had such a fun or lucrative event without their kindness and generosity!

Hopefully we can repeat and expand this event next year in order to bring even more people into the fold, people who will be eager to donate their time and resources as they come to learn more about the impact we make on at-risk youth in the community.

Also, I'd like to point out that anyone, not just employees of Cabrini Connections, can put together events such as this one that benefit Cabrini Connections. Since tutor/mentor organizations are always in need of funds, we are constantly encouraging our volunteers to reach into their networks and support us, by either organizing a fundraising party like the one John Knight threw at Krem 2 wks ago, or by starting workplace fundraising campaigns like our volunteer Mary Catherine Nelson has done at her publishing company Quarasan, Inc. If you have any ideas or know someone who might, please contact us and let us know! Our number is 312-492-9614 or you can email me at chris.warrens.mail (at) gmail(dot)com. Your support is much appreciated!!!

happy holidays

The benefit was lots of fun and we raised close to a thousand dollars. We met some new people, and build stronger relationships with people we already knew.

Thank you Chris, Mike and your bands for organizing this event to help Cabrini Connections.

No problem, anytime I can pretend to be a rockstar, and raise money for Cabrini Connections at the same time, I'll gladly do it!
