Today and tomorrow, ThinkCure!, the Dodgers’ official charity hosts its second annual Radiotelewebethon. ThinkCure! aims to bring Southern Californians together to work towards curing cancer. Their efforts are in conjunction with City of Hope and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

The multimedia fund raising drive, ThinkCure! Weekend, will feature celebrity guests such as The Jonas Brothers, Larry King, Rob Lowe, George Lopez, John Cena, Nathan Followill of Kings of Leon, and more.

Tonight at 7:10 the Dodgers take on the Chicago Cubs for the second of four games. On the strength of Russell Martin’s sixth inning grand slam, the Dodgers won 7-2 last night, finding some desperately needed offense.
