Hip Hop Artist Rhymefest at Cabrini Connections

A few weeks ago, Grammy-winning hip hop artist Rhymefest was in Hawaii working on Kanye West's new album. Last night, he was at Cabrini Connections speaking to youth about his life, the music industry, fear vs. love, and more.

Cabrini Connections is a non-school tutor/mentor program, operating at rented space at 800 W. Huron in Chicago. With the economy making it harder to find donors, programs like this are at risk of shutting down. Yet, learning opportunities like we offer each week, and connections to caring adults who link youth aspirations to jobs and careers beyond poverty, are not available in most public schools.

You can help us keep this program going by becoming a donor/sponsor of our year end dinner, or annual golf benefit, or just by using this form to send a contribution.

Or you can add us to your estate plan, and assure our future with a bequest.

You can help programs like this be available in all parts of Chicago, and in other cities, by participating in the Tutor/Mentor Leadership and Networking Conference on May 27 and 28 at Loyola.
