10/25 Dempster event Nov. 3 at The Palm
Ryan Dempster and Cubs players past and present will get together Nov. 3 for a “Strike Out 22q” fundraiser at the Palm Restaurant in Chicago. Mickey Morandini, Todd Hollandsworth and Mike Bielecki will join Dempster for the event from 6:30-9:30 p.m. CT. Proceeds will benefit The Ryan and Jenny Dempster Family Foundation, dedicated to assisting charities and organizations supporting children with a 22q11.2 Deletion (also known as DiGeorge Syndrome, or VCFS) as well as other children’s charities in the Chicago area.
The evening will begin with a VIP party where guests will enjoy one-on-one time to mix and mingle with Dempster and other guests invited to the event. Beginning at 7:30 p.m., all guests will enjoy a buffet at the Palm, including delicious signature favorites and cocktails, amazing raffle offerings including an iPad2; a fabulous Marco Island, Fla., vacation; and Cubs autographed sports memorabilia. Guests also will have an opportunity to bid to throw out a first pitch at Wrigley Field in 2012. VIP and general admission tickets are available online. Go to dempsterfamilyfoundation.org.
