Balls for Brunch was a great event!! Students at the Chicago Institute of Design had a social gathering on Sunday for the Bears game, where they served meatballs and helped spread the word about testicular cancer!! I was able to speak, along with fellow testicular cancer survivor, Rick Miller, to make sure all the students understand that TESTICULAR CANCER IS THE #1 MOST COMMON CANCER FOR YOUNG MEN!!! That’s right, most cases are 15-35 years old for young men!! I answered some great questions from the crowd, and one student’s mother is just finishing treatments for cancer and her son said she would call our office for help this week!! Wooo-hooo!!!! Grassroots and educating about cancer – thank you to CID for including us!!!
Tonight, meet IA at the Landmark for the Social Stimulus Club. The group meets the first Wednesday of every month at a new venue for a new charity with the goal of shaking up the Chicago philanthropy scene while stirring up their favorite after-work beverages.
“ SSC realizes that in these trying times, people need to redefine how they spend their “entertainment” budget. It’s time to turn “G”reed into “G”iving and inject their hard earned money back into the city’s economy. The goal of Stimulus Social Club is to help turn up the volume on the needs of both local charitable organizations and Chicago’s restaurant and nightlife venues. Stimulus Social Club takes place at a different hip venue with a different charitable beneficiary each time. “
Tonight: Imerman Angels is on tap!!
Join us tonight for Chicago’s Stimulus Social Cub at Landmark (1633 N. Halsted St) 5:30-9pm.

Imerman Angels was on hand for the “University of Chicago Hospitals Myeloma Clinic Presents: Family Day Lunch & Learn” at the South Shore Cultural Center on Saturday, October 24th.
This free event was open to all families who have an interest in good health and included education on Cancer in the African American Community: Myeloma and Other Health Related Concerns. The goal was to reach underrepresented communities in the cancer world. Lunch was served and there were activities for the entire family including a Hot Shot basketball game, a pumpkin patch, face painting and a big hit…art and crafts at the Imerman Angels table! You can never go wrong with kids and glitter!!! This wonderful event was presented in partnership with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Deep down, we all love even the oddest mustache. Movember, a global charity, is inviting men all over the country to spread the word about men’s health by growing a ‘stache during the month of November.
Halo (For Men) is the official men’s grooming salon for Movember and will be offering complimentary mustache trims for all participants.
Our own Jonny Imerman will be at the Halo loop location from 6am to 2pm on November 3rd for the kick off! Up for the challenge? Wahl Trimmers will donate $1 for every Chicagoan who trims up with JI.
Gals, no need to feel left out. Join as a Mo Sista and contribute as a fundraiser and cheerleader. IA has started a Movember team if you are interested in joining, or start your own! http://us.movember.com/register/9797

Tonight, Imerman Angels is “Standing Up Against Cancer” with the help of some of our friends in Chicago’s River North Area. In lieu of our traditional “fight hard” prescription, we will be taking on the disease with a dose of laughter, delivered by some of the best and brightest local comedians.
This third-party event will be hosted by Vince Carone: a regular at the Improv in Schaumburg, who recently returned from performing on the Las Vegas Strip. Kira Soltanovich (Oxygen’s ‘Girls Behaving Badly’) will throw in some spice as the headliner to the show.
Guest performers include: “The Homeless Comic” Brian Neufang, Mix Maxwell, Prashanth Venkataramanujam (The Brown Man Group) and Andrew Woodhull.
Come laugh with us.
Thanks to Maven and Key Management and The Joynt for this event!
