Annual Illini Day at Wrigley Set for May 31


April 21, 2009

The Chicago I FUND is set to host its annual Illini Day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, May 31, 2009. The Chicago Cubs will be taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers at 7:05 p.m. University of Illinois Head Football Coach Ron Zook will be throwing out the first pitch and Head Men's Basketball Coach Bruce Weber will be singing the seventh-inning stretch.

Prior to the first pitch, the I FUND will host a pre-game celebration at John Barleycorn and Moe's Cantina in Wrigleyville from 4:30 pm to 6:45 pm. Tickets cost $60 each and include a seat next to 1200 of your fellow Illini fans at the game and unlimited beverages and buffet at our pre-game locations. Pre-game only tickets can be purchased for $25 each directly through the Chicago I FUND office.

This year, we have implemented a new ticketing procedure. Current I FUND members will receive an email including a ticket link to allow them to purchase tickets in advance. If you are not currently an I FUND member, you can become eligible for pre-sale tickets by calling the Chicago I FUND office at 312-575-7850 and making a donation.

If tickets are available after the pre-sale to I FUND members, remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public Thursday, May 7, at 10 am.
