Committee Members of the Chi-Town Jazz Festival joined volunteers and regular guests of the Tuesday Night Supper on August 16th to make a very special presentation. While guests enjoyed dinner on this warm evening, Committee Member Eileen Lerum, who also is a member of the Catholic Charities Board of Advisors presented a check totaling over $11,000 to Monsignor Michael Boland, President, CEO and Administrator of Catholic Charities, and to Reverend Wayne Watts, Associate Administrator in support of Catholic Charities’ ongoing efforts to fight hunger. Jazz Musician Fr. John Moulder heads the Chi-Town Jazz Festival and the event kicked off earlier this year by performing for the Tuesday Night guests. This Tuesday, the guests responded with resounding applause to Lerum’s presentation. Catholic Charities is one of a number of charities receiving funds from the festival. Thank you, Eileen and everyone on the Festival Committee!

I am so proud and humbled to be in this show. I have for so long been called a loser, good for nothing, never amount to anything person. Today I know I am none of those negative things. Having been clean and sober for seven years I can truly say I feel a part of something good. I see myself as being a photographer and an artist. I’m grateful for this social opportunity. I thank God for everyone involved in making this event successful.Andy A.

We only must tap into the very inter beings of our souls to awaken the art forms in us all. If you do not enjoy what you are doing you will never be good at it. By Luke Parker. If you don’t start somewhere, you’re gonna go nowhere. By Bob Marley. When you photograph people in color you photograph their clothes. When you photograph people in black and white you photograph their soul. Hippy Ted GrantDeborah A.

I love photography. My late uncle was a photographer before he became a businessman. I love photography for the light, the color, the shadows, and all the varied shapes and dimensions. It is a wonderful hobby, and could turn out to be an extremely interesting profession. It’s also a fun way to be an artist.Daniel G.
The heavens are higher than the earth symbolized by the globe, it is even higher than the Willis tower aka Sears Tower. It is higher than the flags along with the Willis Tower, and the new Ferris Wheel featured at Navy Pier. To err may be human, but heaven is always divine, and such are we.Cheryl H.

As the saying goes: A picture is worth a thousand words. In other words, pictures can tell a story. Good or bad, happiness, sadness, whatever the story might be; a visual of what you are trying to say could help the story be told better.Christopher D.
