We all can make an impact on the future of this great city (and nation) by supporting a program that I have grown very fond of called After School Matters– a wonderful organization that provides teens in underserved communities, opportunities to participate in fun, out-of-school activities to teach skills that translate to the workplace. 

The best way to feel their positive impact is by joining Mayor and Mrs. Daley at The Chicago Theatre this Tuesday night (3/31) at 5pm, as they will be hosting a huge event where the asm students will be showcasing their talents to all in attendance.   (details at 

After the show, I will be hosting a fun private reception from 730p-9p at Rockit along with an amazing group of philanthropic minded friends (listed below) who have jumped on to lend a helping hand.  Whether you are able to attend the earlier portion or not… You must join us!  There will be cocktails & hors d’oeuvres, music, and beautiful pieces of…

asm student art that I have selected to be available to all by silent auction in effort to raise money for this promising group of teens and their efforts to learn more and more.  We are only asking that guests make a $20 donation to asm at the door (or more if want) and that you rsvp in advance at as space is limited.


Thank you so much and see you at the event!  And thank you to my cochair julie Lampert and all the following committee members and friends that are helping make this all a success….

    This is an amazing program and I am so proud to be part of the host committee. After School Matters contributes to my father’s organization, Growing Power, and I’ve met some of the teens who participate and will become this country’s next urban farmers. Thank you, Billy, for all the wonderful work you have done with this program. Can’t wait for tomorrow night!
