chicago 2016 olympics w/ nba's dwyane wade September 10, 2009 As part of sport Celeb Olympic interview week here on aChicagoThing I’m sharing one of my favorite USA gold medalist Olympians born & raised in Chicago… Dwyane Wade! We jumped on camera after a cool dinner a couple weeks ago to benefit his charity group- Wade’s World Foundation– which ”provides support to community-based organizations that promote education, health and social skills for children in at-risk situations.” Speaking of being philanthropic, Dwyane is presenting a check to the Chicago Public Library today which is huge and hosting 3 fun fundraising events all in the next 3 nights! A Carrnival Cruise Lines benefit dinner at the “W” Chicago City Center, a bowling event, and “D. Wade’s Chicago has Talent!” (his own American Idol staring local Chicago raw, up and coming talent). For information on all events go to… http://www.wadesworldfoundation.org If you want to help bring the Olympic games to Chicago in 2016 pass this on through email, facebook, twitter…whatever will help spread the word far and fast – on 22 days to go!
