Anthony Rizzo Foundation Benefit featuring Anthony Rizzo
When you have Anthony Rizzo, who is the “Heart and Soul” of the Chicago Cubs, you have to go big or go home! I put more time and energy into this event than any other. This event was everything and more a Club 400 event can be… Jim and Justin from the Modern Day Romeo’s, John Vincent, ESPN’s David Kaplan and Jesse Rogers, and Cubs organist Gary Pressy all came out to entertain the crowd. We broke every record possible that night and had a great time doing so! Anthony was in a stellar mood and showed why he is the face of the Chicago Cubs that night. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t take a bad picture!
How may baseball stars take the time out of their schedule to visit a Cubs Fan’s Man Cave? Not many. That just goes to show you what kind of person Anthony Rizzo is. He is a great role model, and he and his family are doing amazing things by supporting pediatric cancer research and providing assistance to children and their families affected by the disease.
I wanted to send a special thanks to Marc Pollack and Abby Suarez for making this night possible.
Please make sure to support the Rizzo Family Foundation by participating in their events. Cook-Off for Cancer, Laugh-Off for Cancer, and Walk-Off for Cancer to name a few. http://rizzo44.com/category/upcoming-events/
ANOTHONY RIZZO FOUNDATION’S MISSION STATEMENT
The Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Chicago Cubs First Baseman Anthony Rizzo. Anthony realized during his own battle with cancer that no matter how difficult fighting cancer was for him, it was even more difficult for his family. Anthony believes that an individual does not battle cancer alone, but that the whole family battles it together. The Mission of the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation is to raise money for cancer research and to provide support to children and their families battling the disease. The Foundation is run entirely by Anthony’s family, his close friends, and his management team, with Anthony providing oversight and leadership. All of us at the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation believe that every family deserves a fighting chance.
