Columbia Links Fundraiser Set for July 23rd

There's still time to buy tickets for this week's event. Hurry up and get yours! Or donate if you can't make it.


Columbia Links, Chicago's invaluable leadership program at Columbia College, specializes in teaching high school students evidence-based journalism. On Thursday, July 23rd, a fundraiser for Columbia Links will be held at the historic Hemingway Birthplace Home, 339 N. Oak Park Ave., in Oak Park, Illinois. Entitled, "Reporting Their World: Help Teens Make a Difference," the event will give students the opportunity to share their personal stories about reporting on topics such as sex trafficking and the school-to-prison pipeline. Refreshments and tours of the house will be complimentary.

The honorary co-chairs for this event are Chaz Ebert, publisher of RogerEbert.com and president of Ebert Productions, and Stefan Holt, anchor for NBC 5 Chicago. Hosting the event are Columbia Links executive director Brenda Butler, program coordinator Kevin Obomanu, event chair Stan West, co-founder Nancy Day, faculty adviser Yolanda Joe and budget manager Chris Richert.

Earlier this year, RogerEbert.com partnered with the Chicago Urban League and Columbia Links to mentor Chicago high school students and give them a platform for their writing. Click here to read the reviews written by students as part of the Columbia Links program.
