Time Out Chicago’s Around Town feature placed the spotlight on Lincoln Square’s own Carlo Garcia. Garcia, producing director at Mary-Archie Theater, was inspired to give back to the community as he tried to raise funds for his latest production. He started making daily philantrophic donations and listing them on his blog, Living Philanthropic.
From the article:
“I had to take a look at my finances, see what miscellaneous expenditures I could cut out to free up money to give back,” he says. The clotheshorse gave up buying new threads and his daily Starbucks habit. “Look hard enough,” Garcia says, “and we all can find a little bit to give.”
