Newcity Hearts Arts No Comments »

We launched Newcity Hearts Arts in 2012 to support the fundraising events of Chicago’s leading cultural organizations. In 2012, that meant we donated $10,534 in print, online and social media support to eight Chicago nonprofits: Young Chicago Authors, American Blues Theater, ThreeWalls, Voices and Faces Project, Fulcrum Point New Music Project, Chicago Dramatists, Striding Lion and Silk Road Rising.

We’re ready to do more in 2013. If you want to learn more, click here for program details.

Chicago’s second-oldest ensemble theater, American Blues, is holding their major annual fund-raiser this Thursday, and for the cost of a good dinner, you can help keep great art on our stages. Whether it’s a cutting-edge world premiere, the revival of an American classic like “Waiting For Lefty” or the outstanding holiday classic radio-play version of “It’s A Wonderful Life,” American Blues delivers at theater’s highest level.

Get your tickets and we’ll see you there.

The Blue Bash
March 22, 5:30pm-9pm, Seyfarth Shaw LLC, $125
