There were plenty of ball star sightings at the Third Annual Dempster Foundation Casino Night Wednesday at the Palmer House Hilton. Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster and his wife Jenny hosted the bash which raised money to support various children's charities in Chicago. The Foundation raises awareness and funds for DiGeorge Syndrome/VCFS. The "Old Chicago" theme took the stylish crowd back in time for the evening, sponsored by Hendrick’s and Glenfiddich.
