1/10 Big Z, Berg & more
It’s a busy week in Chicago for the Cubs. The Cubs Caravan will be Wednesday and Thursday, and lead up to the Cubs Convention, which will be Friday through Sunday at the Hilton Chicago. New Cubs Carlos Pena and Matt Garza both are expected to attend. But wait, there’s more:
* On Wednesday, Cubs pitcher Justin Berg will join Lil’ Ed and the Blue
Imperials at Buddy Guy’s Legends in downtown Chicago. Showtime is 9
p.m., and tickets are $15. All proceeds go to the Ryan and Jenny
Dempster Family Foundation. The event will include a silent auction and
live auction of two electric guitars autographed by Berg, Lil’ Ed and
the Band, and Buddy Guy.
* On Saturday, Carlos Zambrano will host a party at 8fifty8, 858 W. Lake Street, Chicago, to raise money for the Big Z Foundation. There will be giveaways, a live raffle and silent auction. The event will start at 9 p.m. CT and the donation cover charge is $20. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Big Z Foundation.
