Holiday Benefit - 12.14.08

Lakeside CDC, a nonprofit housing agency that works to preserve and create affordable housing opportunities, is holding its holiday benefit on Sunday December 14 at The Morse Theater, located at 1328 W. Morse. The event, which begins at 3:30 pm, will feature a showing of the holiday classic “It’s a Wonderful Life” on the big screen in the theater’s state-of-the-art and beautifully restored performance space. More than a holiday classic, the film is really a timely message-film about the importance of affordable housing and the need for community residents to pull together in times of need to help their own. I take particular inspiration in seeing how small acts of kindness, given over a lifetime, can make a substantial impact on the lives of others.
Immediately following the film, our guests are invited to join our volunteers, staff, and board members at a scrumptious reception in the second floor lobby/cocktail lounge. Tickets for the event are $40, with all proceeds going to support Lakeside’s housing programs, specifically counseling assistance for low-income renters and homeowners facing foreclosure. Information on Lakeside and the event can be found here. For information or to reserve tickets, please call (773) 381-5253 or email
