Cubs raise over $1.25 million at 2nd Annual Bricks and Ivy Ball; Cubs travel to Philly on off-day

The Chicago Cubs held their second annual Bricks and Ivy Ball last night in Navy Pier's Grand Ballroom, where all of the 2012 Chicago Cubs players and coaching staff mingled with more than 900 guests.  The evening raised more than $1.25 million to benefit Chicago Cubs Charities.

In addition to supporting youth sports, health and fitness throughout Chicago and particular needs of the Lakeview Community, Chicago Cubs Charities will donate a portion of the net proceeds to charities supported by Chicago Cubs players, including the Wood Family Foundation, Theo and Paul Epstein’s A Foundation To Be Named Later, The Greater Chicago Chapter of the ALS Association and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

"We owe the success of this event to our extraordinary Cubs fans, our players and coaches, their wives and the Cubs staff,” said Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts.  “We are tremendously grateful to those who participate alongside us in the efforts to make the Bricks and Ivy Ball a success."

The Cubs had an off day today and will play a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies starting tomorrow at 6:05pm, where Paul Maholm will be the starting pitcher.
