host to the debut of Chicago Urban League’s Teen REACH Music Program as well as
the grand opening of a new South Side Chicago Banking center established by Bank

the red carpet event , where Common will also be on hand to sign autographs.
Bank of America will also support the foundation by donating an undisclosed amount
of money to the Chicago Urban League. The
