Cesario Builders attends Strike a Pose: Chicago Cubs players and their wives hit the runway for charity

Guests enjoyed cocktails and food from some of Chicago’s hottest restaurants while listening to the sounds of DJ Kasper K. The auctions, both live and silent, raised approximately $80K and featured courtside Bulls tickets, a diamond necklace, field lessons with David DeJesus and autographed sports memorabilia. Runway VIPs included Kerry and Sarah Wood, Darwin and Lindsay Barney, Shawn Camp, Tony Campana, Starlin Castro, Steve Clevenger, Scott Feldman, Brett Jackson, Anthony Rizzo, James Russell, Ian Stewart, Travis and Brittany Wood, Matt Garza and Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski.

VIP guests included designer Peach Carr (Project Runway Season 8, Project Runway All Stars Season 2), Tom, Pete and Todd Ricketts, Chef Art Smith, Cubs president of operations Theo Epstein and wife Marie Whitney (Two Penny Blue), Patrick Mannelly (Chicago Bear) and Dave Kaplan (Comcast). “It has been a longtime desire to host a charity event in our hometown of Chicago, said David. “We felt it was only natural to make our first fundraiser dedicated to raising funds for research, patient care and family support for those suffering from ALS.”

The evening raised more than $180K to help in the fight against ALS. Kim and David’s dear friend, Brian Schnurstein, is suffering from this disease and the night was dedicated to him.

I put in an arch if the architectural style calls for it.”

Best cellars for wine

Wait a second before you place that wine rack you just bought above the fridge. It may meet your decorating aesthetics, but wine experts say the heat up there can be a wine killer. That countertop space near the window? Forget it. Ultraviolet light and bright lights are no-no’s.
