ASK/Chicago:  Undoubtedly, my favorite Chicago Organization that gives City Kids the Golden Opportunity to be  achieve – be inspired and become creative in their own capacities. As I reflect back on my life-to-date, had it not been for my Kindergarten Teacher, Miss Fritz who taught my Father, me, my younger Brother & Sister everything we had ‘to know,’ I would not be as productive and skilled as I am Today.  This Group goes that extra Mile for Kids who may not be as fortunate as we were (in the late 1950s & 60s) when Life was entirely different for Children growing up.  Like I always say and it does sound extremely redundant for a  Professional Writer/Promoter who should use different Words to express herself, but:
"After School Matters matter."

The After School Matters Annual Gala celebrates the incredible work of teen apprentices while raising important revenue to continue providing over 22,000 program opportunities each year to well-deserving teens throughout Chicago. Funds raised through the event will support general operating costs to provide youth opportunities in arts, communications, science, sports, and technology.
