On Wednesday, July 13th Betties and Belles partnered with DePaul University’s dance team and had the wonderful opportunity of performing at the 17th Annual CPD Finest vs CFD Bravest Charity Baseball Game at US Cellular Field! This fundraising event earns money for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation, which is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to honoring those police officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. The organization provides support and financial assistance for families of those fallen Chicago police heroes. To this date, the CPMF has donated over $7.4 million to such police families.
It was an honor for Betties and Belles and the DePaul University dance team to have a small part in such an awesome charitable event! The 7 ladies performed a short routine to Thunderstruck following the opening ceremony, which included a tribute to the fallen officers and their families, a flyover and motorcyclists taking the field to Fall Out Boy’s “Light Em Up”. The fire department beat out the police this year, but in the 17 years since this annual event started the police have beat the fire department 15 of 17 games. We were more than happy to perform at an awesome event for such a wonderful cause and love helping in our communities!
