Good Evening from the North Side of Chicago, folks!
Hope you are a lot warmer where you are, than we are here!
In this week's edition of Chicago Neighborhood News, our Team Member Cathy Mallers focuses on local events geared to generate help for Earthquake-Ravaged Haiti. Fundraising Events are scheduled in the Lakeview and Lincoln Park Neighborhoods of Chicago, as well as the in the Chicago Suburb of Oak Park IL.
Also, in the Chicago Neighborhood of Norwood Park, where neighborhood residents are vying for a chance to get a sneak peak of the new motion picture, "Valentines Day."
