#Cubs chef Maddon ready for Thanksmas

Manager Joe Maddon plans on serving spaghetti and meatballs to folks on Wednesday night as part of a Cubs Caravan stop, and on Monday, he went shopping for ingredients for the event.

Maddon and his wife, Jaye, visited a Jewel-Osco store in Chicago for supplies that he’ll use at the “Thanksmas” dinner at the Chicago Help Initiative. The dinner is the first event of the Cubs Caravan, which leads up to this weekend’s Cubs Convention.

Winner of the National League Manager of the Year, Maddon is preparing the meal, and will get help from Cubs players and coaches to serve the 200 guests expected to attend to help raise awareness about Chicago’s homeless population.

During their shopping trip, the Maddons met with a cake decorator who designed the “Thanksmas” cakes, talked to a cashier who was obviously prepped for their visit.

Jewel-Osco contributed $5,000 to Cubs Charities to make the event possible.
