11/5 Meet DeJesus & help fight ALS
Cubs outfielder David DeJesus and his wife Kim will be the celebrity hosts of “Bite Nite” next Monday, Nov. 12, to benefit the ALS Association of Greater Chicago Chapter. The two will join 10 of Chicago’s top chefs, who will showcase tasting-size portions of their cuisine. The event also will feature a specialty vodka bar and silent art auction. Tickets are $75 for the fundraiser, to be held at Kendall College, 900 N. North Branch Street, Chicago, IL, from 6:30-9:30 p.m. CT. The ALS Association of Greater Chicago Chapter supports research, advocacy, awareness, community and local care services for those affected by amyotrophic lateral scleroris, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Kim’s high school friend was diagnosed with ALS, which motivated the couple to raise money and awareness. In July, they combined to lead a drive for ALS Day at Wrigley Field, and raised more than $28,000 for the ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter.
