It is time again for the fundraising event of the summer. The 2022 Club 400 Event will feature Marcus Stroman, a member of the Chicago Cubs pitching staff and philanthropist for children who are struggling.

Club 400 was the vision of Stewart McVicar who finished building out his Chicago Cubs themed basement in 2013, with a goal was to build a place for he and his buddies to 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.

This event will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, May 27, and will benefit each of these three organizations: HDMH Foundation, The Lost Boyz and Club 400.

Stroman is donating his time, so 100% of the money raised will be evenly divided among the three charities.

The event is expected to include about 200 ticket holders, 50 children from The Lost Boyz organization and 30 volunteers.

As usual for a Club 400 Event, there will be photographs with Stroman, food and beverages, entertainment including dueling pianos, a live band and the organist of the Chicago Cubs John Benedeck, gift bags, a magician, merchandise and live and silent auctions and other surprises.

The organizers of the event are hoping to generate at least $30,000 and to push the overall goal of $1,000,000 to the $700,000 mark.

Club 400 is a 2,300-square-foot Chicago Cubs Man Cave which has been utilized to raise money for the 501(c)3 nonprofit Club 400 "Cubs Fans Helping Cubs Fans."
