7/20 Dempster Casino Night tonight
How would you like a chance to purchase a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth? How about a trip to Las Vegas? Or a Derrek Rose jersey? Maybe a Ron Santo autographed baseball is more to your taste?
Those are some of the items available at tonight’s Dempster Foundation Casino Night at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago. Tickets are still available. Call 312-415-9846 for information.
Some of the auction items include a three-night stay at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas with a $500 airline voucher; a 2012 Ryder Cup package, including two weekly grounds passes at Medinah Country Club; a Patrick Kane autographed jersery and Blackhawks tickets; a Derrick Rose autographed jersey; a trip to Hollywood to see the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and Jimmy Kimmel Live Show; dinner with Dempster at Harry Caray’s restaurant; a trip to Disney World with a stay at Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort; a Ron Santo autographed baseball and more.
Proceeds benefit the Dempster Family Foundation Strike Out 22q campaign. The foundation assists charities and organizations supporting children with 22q11.2 deletion (DiGeorge syndrome).
The foundation raised about $400,000 last year at the event.
