8/24 Meet Wood, Soto at Harry’s
Kerry Wood and Geovany Soto will meet fans next month. On Sept. 1, Wood will get together with folks from 7-9 p.m. CT at Harry Caray’s Italian Steakhouse on Kinzie Street, part of a Wood Family Foundation night. For a $50 donation to the foundation, fans will receive a Wood autographed baseball, have him autograph one personal item, and get a drink ticket. Wood jerseys, photos and baseballs will be available for purchase at Harry Caray’s during the event. Other activities will include a Cubs autographed ball raffle ($40 each). There will be Kerry Wood drink specials and the opportunity to order a drink from the pitcher when he gets behind the bar to work for tips (as schedule permits). All proceeds to benefit the Wood Family Foundation.
On Sept. 5 at Harry Caray’s Tavern on Navy Pier, fans can meet Soto, the Cubs catcher, from 7-8 p.m. CT. Soto will sign autographs and pose for pictures. Sports fans also can check out the Chicago Sports Museum inside the restaurant which features a rotating collection of sports memorabilia and other unique artifacts. There is no charge for this event.
