CHICAGO – The Chicago Cubs return to Wrigley Field for a 10-game homestand featuring visits from the St. Louis Cardinals May 3-5, Miami Marlins May 6-9 and Milwaukee Brewers May 10-12.

Cubs Charities will kick off a month of giving with more than 30 events taking place throughout Chicago communities, involving Cubs players and Cubs associates. The month of giving officially begins Friday, May 3, with a Cubs Scholars surprise at a local high school, followed by the Archer Park Diamond Project ribbon-cutting ceremony and leading into the weekend, Sunday, May 5, with the Cubs Charities Youth Baseball and Softball Festival, a free public outdoor festival that will include several promotional giveaways and baseball activities including playing with current Cubs players. The festival is part of Major League Baseball’s “Play Ball Weekend.” Additional activations during the weekend include Cubs players wearing “Let the Kids Play” T-shirts during batting practice and a group of youth athletes will “Take the Field” at each starting position during Saturday’s pregame.

As part of the month of giving, fans are invited to spend a glamorous “Night Under the Stars” at the Ninth Annual Bricks and Ivy Ball Thursday, May 9, at the Aon Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier. Guests can enjoy specialty cocktails and an elegant seated dinner alongside Cubs players, coaches, alumni, front office executives and ownership. Proceeds from the event benefit the Cubs Charities Diamond Project. Limited tickets remain available at www.cubs.com/bricksandivy.

On Friday, May 10, Xfinity will host an activation at Gallagher Way before and during the game. The activation will include photo opportunities, lawn games and charging stations. The Cubs offer expanded free Wi-Fi service powered by Xfinity available throughout the ballpark and Gallagher Way using the network labeled "XfinityWifi@Wrigley."
