With all the cancellations and postponements of sporting events, fans have been eager to see something new. They were thrilled to see the debut of “The Last Dance”, and to get a few days worth of content from the NFL Draft. Tonight, they’ll get even more as NBC Sports Chicago has announced a special fundraising event: Be Chicago: “Together We Can”. David Kaplan and Eddie Olczyk will host the show that will benefit United Way of Metro Chicago’s “Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund” tonight at 7 on NBCS Chicago.
Sean Garrett, the CEO of United Way Of Metro Chicago, and Kevin Cross, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of NBC Sports Chicago, join Bob Sirott and Dave Eanet to preview tonight’s event. Favorite members from all of Chicago’s pro sports teams will make appearances, along with music and comedy performances, and special segments honoring the Chicago-area’s frontline heroes and much more.
Those who are able are encouraged to donate to the fundraiser benefiting the “Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund”.
