Huge thanks to the Chicago Cubs and all of you who took part in our first-ever visit to historic Wrigley Field on August 27. Thanks also to Mr. Blotto, who played a great pregame concert.
It was a great evening of reconnecting with long-lost friends (here, Executive Director Cameron Sears with Deb Solomon of Wall Street Dead aHead and Rex Advisory Board member Jay Caauwe) and watching a great game, as the Cubs beat the Mets 7-4.
The Cubs donated a portion of each special event ticket price to the Rex Foundation, citing Rex's support of good work in the Chicago community, particularly 2017 Jerry Garcia Award recipient Mariachi Heritage Foundation for its music and culture programs in Chicago schools.
Speaking of the Mariachi Heritage Foundation, they're about to hit the road from their home in Chicago, and will be performing at Livermore's Bankhead Theater on October 27. Go check them out in person! Details here.
Mark your calendars! Saturday, December 1, we return to The Fillmore for our annual benefit concert and holiday festivities. We hope you'll be part of the celebration! We'll have more details to share shortly--it's going to be great. Stay tuned...
