Last night, October 11, Broadway's Tony Award-winning hit musical CHICAGO and Givenik.com presented a special performance and post-show reception to benefit the four favorite charities of current leading-lady Kara DioGuardi -- Phoenix House (phoenixhouse.org), Columbus Citizens Foundation (columbuscitizensfd.org), Malaria No More (malarianomore.org) and Sister Domingas and Friends Foundation (sisterdomingas.org). 

A portion of sales from all tickets sold for the October 11 benefit performance will be donated to the charity of the purchasers choice. In addition, the first 40 people who purchase full-priced tickets the performance gained admission to a special post-show reception and meet-n-greet with Kara DioGuardi and the CHICAGO cast at E&E Grill House.
