Rizzo's Family Foundation raised $140,000 at the second "Cook-Off for Cancer" fundraiser held last Friday at Revel Downtown in Chicago. The money will be used to help and support families with children fighting cancer.
"The direction the foundation is going is really nice to see; it's growing and we just want to continue to do this in Chicago," Rizzo said.
