What a year for the 2017 Chicago Cubs, as they returned to the NLCS for the third time in three years after becoming World Champions in 2016. Wood Family Foundation is ecstatic to once again partner with the Cubs and Harry Caray’s for the 7th Annual Woody’s Winter Warm-Up at Harry Caray’s 7th Inning Stretch located in historic Water Tower Place. Join Kerry Wood and your favorite Cubs players from this season, along with Chicago’s favorite sports celebrities past and present from the Cubs, Sox, Bulls, Bears and Blackhawks, along with other local celebrities bartending for tips to support WFF.

All proceeds benefit the Wood Family Foundation, as we support the growth and development of youth in Chicago’s North Lawndale neighborhood with our afterschool and summertime mentoring program, Pitch In. Together We Win!
