A pair of Chicago sports legends will be in the Chicagoland area this weekend signing autographs for fans at the Yorktown Center Mall in Lombard.

Cubs Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins and Blackhawks Hall of Famer Pierre Pilote will be at the Sports 'N More memorabilia store in the mall from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. for four straight days, starting Saturday and extending until Tuesday.

The Fergie Jenkins Foundation is putting on the event as an effort to give back for the holidays. Proceeds from the signings will go to the JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

"I am excited to be working alongside Pierre again. He is a good friend and it is for a good cause," Jenkins, who turned 70 on Thursday, said in a press release. "The JDRF is one of my favorite charities and helping with their efforts is the least that we can do to help give back during the holiday season."
