Chinese-American Museum Is Getting Some Help

Thursday, October 16, 2008

In a previous post you heard me talk about the Chicago's Chinese-American museum and how it has needed some help rebuilding after the fire - and while I'm sure people are already helping out - it's nice to hear about some other organizations helping out as well:

Cultural organizations across the city are working to help the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago rebuild after a Sept. 19 fire severely damaged its building and destroyed artifacts.

The National Museum of Mexican Art said Wednesday it will host a benefit Oct. 29, with all proceeds going to a rebuilding fund for the Chinatown museum.

National Museum President Carlos Tortolero said 26 Chicago arts groups are co-sponsoring the event. A fund for donations also has been set up at American Metro Bank, 2144 A S. Archer Ave.
