Chance The Rapper Will Grill Wings at Local Restaurant Nando’s for Charity
Chance The Rapper's streak of good deeds continues. Yesterday (Aug. 29), the rapper announced he will combine his love of wings with his knack for facilitating charity when he handles the grill at a new Nando's location in Chicago next Tuesday (Sept. 5). The piri-piri chicken chain will donate all proceeds generated from Sept. 5-7 to SocialWorks, Chance's nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds for Chicago's arts programs.
"Meet me at @NandosUSA Michigan Ave opening. I’m grilling on 9/5 @ 6pm to #SupportCPS & raise $ for @SocialWorks_Chi," Chano wrote in a tweet on Tuesday. Definitely sounds like a good time.
Chano's latest charitable endeavor falls right in line with others he's taken on in 2017. Back in March, he called on the Illinois Governor Rauner to do his best to improve schools in Chicago.
“Illinois ranks dead last in the U.S. in funding public education. With the stroke of a pen, the Governor has the power to change that,” the Grammy-winning MC said in a press conference at the time. "This isn’t about politics, this isn’t about posturing, this is about taking care of the kids. “Governer Rauner, do your job.” A short while later, Chano took matters into his own hands and donated $1 million to the Chicago Public School system.
Speaking with DNAInfo, Nando’s USA VP Sepanta Bagherpour says Chano was perfect for the opening of their new Chicago location. “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."
