To date, the Stimulus Social Club, or SSC, has raised over $115,000 for local Chicago charities. When you break that down to brass tacks, these individuals with busy social calendars and full hearts have poured over $100k into programs that benefit the residents of our city, just by having a good time. This month's event, should you care to join, will be held at District, in River North. On Wednesday, May 4 at 5:30 p.m., your $10 donation will score you a free drink and appetizers donated by District. All proceeds will go straight to Sit, Stay, Read, an organization dedicated to improving literacy levels in Chicago's at-risk youth. This plan is so genius, we're bummed we didn't think of it ourselves, but we're thrilled to be able to participate.
