On Sunday, Aug. 21, the first Club 400 Palooza will be an exclusive private rooftop party for 150 people on the Wrigley View Rooftop. All the proceeds of this fundraising event will go to support the many causes of Club 400.

Club 400 was the vision of Lake in the Hills resident Stewart McVicar who finished building out his Chicago Cubs-themed basement in 2013, where he and his buddies could watch Cubs games together when not at Wrigley Field.


After a couple of National Man Cave of the Year Awards and an event featuring Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts, McVicar set his sights on raising $1,000,000 for selected Cubs fans who are in need.

To date, just over $700,000 has been raised to help people with illness or struggles, families of responders that have passed away, less advantaged children, and many others.

Your ticket, which costs $220, includes attendance at the Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs game from the rooftop at 1050 W. Waveland Ave., all-you-can eat and drink (featuring Buona Beef and Club 400 lager), a live Club 400 podcast, raffles, silent and live auctions, and live entertainment including Wrigley's own Bleacher Bum Band.

After the game, there will be photo opportunities with Frank Schwindel and Patrick Wisdom from the Cubs, a Q&A hosted by Taylor McGregor, and other special guests as well as a postgame buffet with wings from Output Wrigleyville, pizza, and many other surprises.
