When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government
refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The
Big Short.Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of
modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based
on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind
Side, Moneyball), and directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers).
The Big Short stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling & Brad Pitt.

held its first annual fundraiser at the Godfrey Hotels IO Urban
Roofscape. Over one hundred guests enjoyed DJ Toddizza playing a mix of
hip-hop and 80s classics, delicious appetizers provided by The Godfrey
Hotel, and a silent auction with a range of items, including an
all-expenses paid trip to New Orleans, premium Bulls tickets, and a
ten-course-meal provided by Goose & Fox. The event raised thousands
of dollars for our year-round Education Program,
