SEEN ON THE SCENE: Once again “Woody’s Winter Warm-Up” — benefitting the family foundation of ex-Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood and his wife, Sarah — was a big success, raising more than $100,000 for the Woods Family Foundation’s “Pitch In” after-school mentoring program for kids in the Lawndale neighborhood. Hosted by the Mix’s Eric Ferguson and Kathy Hart at Harry Caray’s 7th Inning Stretch and Chicago Sports Museum at Water Tower Place, the event featured music by the Plain White T’s and DJ Matt Roan, and attracted a ton of local sports and media personalities including Jon Lester, Starlin Castro, Jake Arrieta, Cubs owners Tom Ricketts and his sis Laura Ricketts, Cubs prez Theo Epstein, ex-Sox star Ron Kittle, “Chicago PD” star LaRoyce Hawkins, Jarrett Payton, Ryan Chiaverini, Jane Monzures and Pete McMurray. … Meanwhile, the same night Scottie Pippen was spied at Joe’s Stone Crab, as was Desmond Clark and the Hawks’ Patrick Kane — who also was sighted recently at RPM Steak, where Derrick Rose also made the scene. … Anthony Rizzo was caught dining at RPM Italian and then later went to Three Dots and a Dash, where the Hawks’ Corey Crawford and the aforementioned Desmond Clark were also spotted.
