For the past year he has donated thousands of dollars to charity and did a lot of good for the people of Chicago. Over the past 12 months, Chance has proven to be a hometown hero for Chicago. First, he donated a whopping $1 million to Chicago Public Schools, then he upped the ante by vowing to donate $10,000 to a specific CPS for every $100,000 Social Works raises.
His latest idea: he will personally be grilling chicken at the grand opening of the Chicago branch of the U.K.-based restaurant chain Nando's at Michigan Avenue and Lake Street (entrance at 117 E. Lake Street) at 6pm CT on Sept. 5th, the same day the Chicago public schools open, and the barbecue will raise funds for his youth empowerment charity, Social Works.
Fans interested in seeing the Grammy winner in person to help support Social Works and Chicago's Public Schools are encouraged to stop by the eatery on September 5 by 6 p.m.
The superstar's latest charitable effort comes after his recent announcement in which he plans to donate his Best Rap Album Grammy to Chicago's DuSable Museum of African American History.
"We can’t think of a better ambassador to help Nando’s celebrate the Grand Opening of our flagship Chicago location, and to help support public education in a city we love," said Sepanta Bagherpour, Nando's USA vice president of marketing
Nationwide, Nando's has donated more than $225,000 to public schools and local non-profit organizations, all through opening-week sales.
