Candyality is kicking off the baseball season and hosting Cub’s Pitcher (and candy aficionado), Ryan Dempster at their Southport location for a fundraiser benefitting the Ryan & Jenny Dempster Family Foundation on Sunday April 3 from 4-6pm. Come meet Ryan and discuss your favorite candy as he signs in as Candyality’s Celebrity Candy Specialist for the afternoon. Ryan will autograph Mini Candy Bins filled with the ever popular red, white, and (cubbie) blue-Cubbie Gummie Bears with proceeds from the sales and the Sweetest Cub’s Fan Raffle going to the charity. Only available during the baseball season, this delicious blend of red, white, and (cubbie) blue bears are offered in bulk for you to scoop for your favorite Cub Fan.
The Ryan and Jenny Dempster Family Foundation is dedicated to raising awareness of DiGeorge Syndrome and reaching out to families with children with the disorder, and the charities that support them, to help them deal with difficult situations they face each day. The Dempster Family Foundation strives to lend support through monetary grants, programs and increased community awareness through the following ways: providing funding to continue research to early detection of the illness in children, supporting continuing education about their illness, and encouraging programs suggesting physical activity to ensure long term well being and build confidence in these children.
