7/8 Casino night fundraiser July 21
Tickets are still available for the first Casino Night and Concert July 21 at the House of Blues in Chicago to benefit Ryan and Jenny Dempster’s foundation and help strikeout 22q (DiGeorge syndrome). The fundraiser will feature a night on the town to mingle with Cubs players. Some of the celebs scheduled to take part include American singer, Jaron and The Long Road to Love; former pro baseball and football player, Bo Jackson; former MLB player, Frank Thomas; and Jonathan Toews, Brian Campbell, and Adam Burish of the Blackhawks.
Each of the celebs will serve as guest dealers at the casino tables. Proceeds will benefit families dealing with 22q disorder, which Dempster’s daughter, Riley, has. For more info, go to dempsterfoundation.org and click on the Casino Night button at the top of the page.
