Care For Real's website says, "Founded in 2010, the Chi-Town Jazz Festival is the jazz community’s annual effort to support hunger relief in Chicago. Music clubs and concert halls donate their venues, musicians in the jazz community donate their talents, and individuals donate their organizing, creative and fundraising abilities. They raise financial support from Chicago area businesses, corporations and individuals which is donated to well recognized, established entities to fight hunger in the Chicago area. Care for Real, along with Catholic Charities, is honored to be a recipient of the 2013 Chi-Town Jazz Festival."
