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.
