2nd Annual LMCB Cubbies Rooftop Event
Lou Malnati’s has hosted an annual benefit for 38 years, and has raised more than $2 million for cancer research and education programs at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Gilda’s Club of Chicago, and Children’s Memorial Hospital. Last year more than $180, 000 was raised at The 38th Annual Lou Malnati Cancer Benefit. The event featured a side-splitting performance by The Second City, along with guest performer Chicago Cubs rookie sensation, pitcher Jeff Samardzija. A great time was had by all, and thanks to so many generous contributions we were able to reach our fundraising goal. Stay tuned for details on the 2009 event!
Last summer for the first time, an additional event was held in support of the main benefit. The event was held on a Wrigleyville rooftop and was a huge success. Not only did the Cubs win, but over $10,000 was raised! This year the 2nd Annual Cubbies Rooftop Event will be Monday, May 25th as the Cubs take on the Pirates at 7:05pm. Spots are still available, so come on out and support a great cause! Tickets are $125 per person, and include a great view of the ball game, all you can eat food service, and unlimited drinks (including wine, beer, and soda).
