Last updated 1 year ago

There really isn’t any better place to be in Chicago this coming Saturday, Oct 3rd, than at WhirlyBall in Bucktown. Why do you ask? This Saturday night marks the inaugural WhirlyCruz Cup. You might be wondering, “Why does this matter?” “What’s all the hype?”

Let’s break it down slowly, because there’s a lot of awesomeness to digest here:

The WhirlyCruz Cup is an event that Joe Minoso (star of NBC’s Chicago Fire) is hosting at WhirlyBall. “Well that’s awesome! I love that show and he’s one of my favorite characters. Where do I sign up?” Well, hold your horses, ‘cause it gets even better. The WhirlyCruz Cup will also bring stars from both NBC shows, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, as well as other local celebrities to throwdown on the WhirlyBall court! 

But there’s more! Not only will all these amazing actors and actresses be in the house, but all proceeds made at WhirlyCruz go to the 100 Club of Chicago, providing for the families of fallen First Responders of Cook and Lake Counties! You can purchase a ticket if you just want to watch WhirlyCruz go down, enter as a team of 4 or as an individual player if you want to throwdown with the stars, or simply contribute to the 100 Club of Chicago.

Now you’re probably saying, “Okay, I submit, it couldn’t possibly get any better.” But it does. Not only will the casts of the primetime NBC dramas be squaring off, but anyone who purchases a player ticket will join teams with celebrity team captains like former Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood, former Blackhawks player Reid Simpson and media personality Brittney Payton, among others. 

The event is named WhirlyCruz after Minoso’s Chicago Fire character name, Joe Cruz. This is sure to be one of WhirlyBall’s most memorable events ever! Get tickets while they are available and please donate to the 100 Club of Chicago. Chicago’s First Responders are out there day and night protecting our city, and we are proud to give our support. So come have a great time watching your favorite NBC stars duke it out on the WhirlyBall court, support Chicago's First Responders and their families, and have eternal bragging rights - it’s all happening this Saturday, October 3rd, at WhirlyBall Chicago!
