Daily choices of those who are homeless: January 17

Connections for the Homeless invites you and a friend to its next "Bring a Friend to Breakfast." It promises to be an enlightening session.

When: Thursday, January 17
Time: 7:00 - 9:00 a.m.
Where: Lake Street Church, Evanston, IL. 

Known for his amazing presentation skills and knowledge of the dilemmas facing Connection's clients, case manager Tim Anstett will lead participants in an interactive game that will clarify the daily choices and struggles many of the agency's clients face. Will you keep the roof over your head? Will you end up on the streets?  

Regarding the menu, says Sue Loellbach, Connection's Director of Development:
We usually have frittatas, but no cook this time. So, bagels and donated Bennison’s pastries it is.

Hope to see you there.

Margaux Pepper makes a fashion film


My extraordinarily talented intern, +Margaux Pepper, will premiere the fashion film she produced Friday, January 25. She and I would love to see you there.

The untitled film, directed by Rachel Jones, Multimedia Editor of NU-student-run STITCH fashion magazine, follows four friends camping and showcases a variety of outdoor fashion trends.

"Rachel and I had the idea for the project last Spring and arranged meetings with STITCH and our professors to get the go-ahead to start production. We gathered a crew during the Fall, filmed the entire shoot on a weekend in late November, and are finishing up final edits right now. Ours is the first fashion short film in STITCH's history. It explores the depiction of fashion as art, rather than as a commercial," says Margaux Pepper.

Consider coming out to meet and support some smart, enthusiastic students.
