Fifteen CPS students from west side neighborhood schools perform their original poetry on stage before a standing-room only audience. The annual fundraiser benefits America SCORES Chicago, an afterschool program using soccer, poetry and service-learning to engage underserved youth. Money raised directly supports the organization’s mission “to inspire urban youth to lead healthy lives, be engaged students, and have the confidence and character to make a difference in the world.” America SCORES Chicago serves over 300 3rd-8th grade CPS students with its combination soccer, poetry and service-learning program, but an additional 1,000 Kindergarten-8th grade CPS students through its Community Schools partnership. 5:30pm, cocktails and silent auction; 7pm, student performances.
