My husband David may have been traded to another team, but that does not stop us from returning home and hosting a charity fundraiser with his former teammates.  The David DeJesus Family Foundation has teamed up with Cubs Charities to host “Strike a Chord” Celebrity Karaoke to benefit ALS research, a disease which has affected our close friend Brian Schnurstein.  The event will feature David, myself, Ryan Chiaverini (Windy City LIVE), Jeff Hoover (WGN), B96 Morning Show team, Danni Allen (winner of Biggest Loser) and Cubs players teaming up with local media personalities and Chicagoans to compete on the microphone.  In addition to cocktails, food will be provided by American Junkie, Chicago Q, Siena Tavern, Wow Bao and GT Fish & Oyster.

We started the David De Jesus Family Foundation (DDF) in 2012 with the purpose of helping families in crisis or who may lack access to basic human needs in Chicago, and throughout the world.  We have been actively involved in the fight against ALS-Lou Gehrig’s disease and want to support those families who may be suffering.
