June 12, 2013
The Chicago I FUND is set to host its annual Illini Day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, July 7, when the Cubs host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:20 p.m. Tickets are on sale now to an exclusive Rooftop Party with Fighting Illini head basketball coach John Groce. Tickets are $105 each and include all food and beverages. When he's not at the rooftop, Coach Groce will participate in a pair of events, throwing out the first pitch and singing "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during the seventh-inning stretch.
To order tickets to the Rooftop Party for Illini Day at Wrigley Field, complete the online registration at go.illinois.edu/illiniday. Illini fans will want to act fast as tickets are extremely limited.
The I FUND also will host a pre-game reception at Rebel Bar & Grill in Wrigleyville (3462 N. Clark St.), with Coach Groce scheduled to attend at 11:30 a.m. Illini fans are also encouraged to head to Rebel for a post-game party as well. Admission is free to both the pre- and post-game events at Rebel.
