Chance The Rapper Visited Uptown Last Night
Guess who showed up at the Pedersen-McCormick Boys and Girls Club on Friday night? Chance the Rapper made an unannounced appearance to help distribute winter clothing to club members. He stayed for a couple of hours giving autographs, talking to the attendees, and posing for photos.
The Pedersen-McCormick club, located at 4832 N Sheridan, is one of 23 Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, which serve 17,000 youth annually. Their services, activities, and after-school programs are available to anyone between the ages of 6 and 18. Membership is $20 per year.
This isn't Chance's first unannounced visit to Uptown. Last March, he visited Courtenay School for a career fair. Good guy, that Chance.
