Thank you so much for supporting South Shore Shake & Stir! Thanks to you, the event raised more than $56,000 net for CYC-Rebecca K. Crown Youth Center in South Shore. These funds will support the critical programs at CYC-Crown that give children the resources and tools needed to succeed and persist in school, life, and the workforce: innovative and creative spaces to learn; engaged families and mentors; and programs designed to expand children’s abilities to think critically, create, communicate, and collaborate.

Check out more photos from South Shore Shake & Stir on CYC’s Flickr and Facebook pages.

We hope to see you at our next event, our annual Believe in Kids Dinner: Imagining Tomorrow Today on Thursday, May 19, 2016. This formal dinner will celebrate CYC’s 60-year legacy of impact and will feature a keynote presentation by acclaimed principal and speaker Pearl Arredondo. Register and learn more on our website.

Thanks again for making South Shore Shake & Stir a huge success. We hope you had astirring good time!

Summer at CYC

For children in Chicago’s south and west communities, summer can be a time of food insecurity, learning loss, and escalating violence. CYC makes summer a season of possibility for these children. Learn how.
