This slideshow documents the 2016 7th Annual Chi-Town Jazz Festival Supporting Hunger Relief in Chicago. World-class musicians donated their talents, venues donated their space, and volunteers worked together to raise money for charities serving the food insecure. This year’s recipients were Care for Real, Top Box Foods, and Catholic Charities. The Festival raised over $41,000 through 6 concert events. I’ve been documenting all seven years. Planning has already begun for next year. Details about the Festival are at chitownjazzfestival.org.
