Guy Josif has been shot at by machine guns, tortured, beaten and imprisoned — all for just living in Darfur during the conflict in Sudan. He made his way to Chicago with a student visa after applying to more than 60 colleges, and in January, he showed in Lakeview with $15 in his pocket.
On Saturday, Josif will be at Matilda's Bar, 3101 N. Sheffield Ave., to raise money for his tuition and living expenses, since he cannot work on his visa. The cost is $15 and includes one drink ticket, with $10 going directly to Josif. Wine, beer and well drinks will cost $5, with 20 percent going toward Josif.
