I’m really kidding about that headline if you failed to read past that. This is a wonderful story linked from DNAInfoChicago:
Pearl Jam — the socially conscious rockers from Seattle who play at Wrigley Field July 19 — pledged to donate a portion of ticket sale revenue to the tiny after-school art program Ward founded on the Far Southeast Side 12 years ago.
Plus, the Cubs — and the family charity of baseball boss Theo Epstein, A Foundation To Be Named Later — pitched in to double the amount to $65,000.
I don’t see how you can not like this. And I hope this puts a happy note in your heart for everything Cubs as they work towards rebuilding the franchise and becoming a stronger force in the Chicago community.
