The Guild goes to a ball

Ferro flyer

On Saturday, Sept. 7, several Chicago Newspaper Guild members, photographers and supporters leafleted an upscale charity gala. Wrapports’ venture Splash was listed as an event sponsor, so Guild members distributed free literature about Sun-Times’ parent company’s chairman Michael Ferro.

Green Tie Ball draws more than 3,000 to the fundraiser for Gateway Green’s Express Partnership Program, which works to improve the “aesthetics and environmental health of Chicago today,” according to www.gatewaygreen.org. The Guild has no quarrel with the charity that has removed more than 1.2 million pounds of litter since 1998 (according to its Web site).

The leaflet distributed pointed out that Wrapports continues to be stingy with Sun-Times Media employees yet bestows generosity elsewhere.

    The “Splash Man” should make an even biggers splash by swan-diving into the river.

    I wasn’t able to be there, but I’m very proud to know the Guild was out, reminding Mr. Ferro – and any of his potential admirers – that charity begins at home. Thank you all!
