Ballplayers became bartenders on Jan. 18 at Woody’s Winter Warm-Up, a fund-raiser hosted by retired Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood and his wife Sarah. More than 450 guests turned out at Harry Caray’s Tavern Navy Pier (600 E. Grand) for the second annual event featuring an all-star lineup — Matt Garza, Jeff Samardzija, Tony Campana and more — who served drinks and competed for tips donated to the Wood Family Foundation. The party raised more than $100,000 for the foundation, which works to improve the lives of kids in Chicago.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
