Confirmed Cubs players include Marlon Byrd, Matt Garza, Geovany Soto, Starlin Castro, Ryan Dempster, Randy Wells, Welington Castillo, Darwin Barney, and James Russell. Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein, baseball legends Ernie Banks, and Rick Sutcliffe, and former Chicago Bears Richard Dent and Otis Wilson will also be in attendance.*

The evening will include “meet and greet” opportunities with Cubs players, silent auction, premium open bar, dinner buffet and raffle with all proceeds benefitting the WFF. There will be a special acoustic performance by Chicago’s very own Plain White T’s who are not only platinum selling Grammy nominated artists, but HUGE Cubs fans! In addition, there will be an acoustic set by singer William Beckett who has toured with the band The Academy Is… plus Grammy nominated and Chicago based music producer Paul Blair, AKA DJ White Shadow, will be on hand to entertain the crowd with his masterfully blended mix of music.

Net proceeds from Woody’s Winter Warm-up will support the Wood Family Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the lives of children in and around Chicago. The Foundation is committed to funding both immediate and long-term relief projects for various children’s issues.
