Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 12, 2013
Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy will step off the baseball field and on to the music stage to entertain guests in the first Jake Peavy and Friends Charity Jam on Sunday, June 23, 2013, at the famed Joe’s Bar on Weed Street in Chicago. Doors open at 8 p.m.
The star-studded night will feature live country music from Jake and some of his celebrity friends in from Nashville, sports stars, live auction and raffle, appetizers, a VIP buffet dinner and open bar, and of course, some surprises along the way — all to raise money for charity to help end cancer.
“I’m taking my love of music, my desire to help others and combining them it to support cancer research in honor of my grandmother, Dama Lolley, who lost her fight with the disease last January,” said Jake Peavy. “We’ve been preparing for this show since spring training and I can’t wait--I know it will be a blast and a good time for all.”
In addition to Peavy, performers include Channing Wilson, Tyler Reeve, Adam Craig, Cole Swindell, Stevie Monce, Billy Jewel, Tyler Hamilton, Brushfire Band, and country artist and songwriter Jonathan Singleton, known for co-writing “Don’t” by Billy Currington, “Watching Airplanes” by Gary Allan, “Red Light” and” Let It Rain” by David Nail and “Why Don’t we Just Dance” by Josh Turner and more. Trish Biondo and Drew Walker from WUSN Chicago will serve as the night’s MC’s.
Jake Peavy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit that supports groundbreaking research, essential life programs and activities to enrich lives and uplift spirits. The Charity Jam will raise funds for the Jake Peavy Foundation in support of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a national non-profit and a world-wide leader in cancer research.
