Thursday night, actor and singer Donnie Wahlberg rocked the house, raising over $700,000 for wife Jenny McCarthy’s, autism charity, Generation Rescue, at his first ever solo-concert!

The iconic Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL hosted nearly 1,000 fans in an intimate concert experience, AND the Blue Bloods star made a matching donation of $100,000 to the foundation.

Special guests included New Kids on the Block band mates, Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, and Danny Wood with hip hop artists, Nice & Smooth and Naughty by Nature.

The Chicago lovebirds then brought the party back to the historic Hotel Baker, where the two wed almost two years ago, for an exclusive after party, closing the night for a cause near and dear to their hearts (as if they could get any bigger!).

McCarthy’s son, Evan, was diagnosed with autism in 2005. Wahlberg joined the board of directors for Generation Rescue in 2015.

The evening was presented by Hotel Baker, Jenee L. Polaczek, and OxyHealth, all longtime supporters of the organization.

Generation Rescue is the leading national nonprofit organization providing hope and immediate treatment assistance to families affected by autism spectrum disorders.

Wherever the New Kids on the Block are, Kristen Parness and Danielle DeCristoforo are not far behind. They go to their concerts. They’ve seen them get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They’ve even gone on a fan cruise with the band — three times.

On Thursday, their fandom brought the besties from New York all the way to the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles. Parness won the #GoHomeWithDonnie fan sweepstakes.

The win got her plane tickets for two, front row seats for a solo performance by St. Charles resident Donnie Wahlberg, VIP after-party access, and accommodations at the Hotel Baker. And she couldn’t think of a better person to bring with her than DeCristoforo.

“My husband now has a man-crush on Donnie,” Parness said. “He loves him in ‘Blue Bloods.’ When I won, he was like, ‘I’m so excited to meet him. He seems so cool.’ And I was like, ‘You’re not coming.'”

Parness and DeCristoforo met at a CD signing the band hosted during a 2008 reunion. They’ve been best friends ever since, bonding over their #BHlove (BH is short for Block Heads, a term of affection for fans of the New Kids).

“God, we just love them,” Parness said. “From ages 8 to 12 they were like our first loves. They were such a part of our life when we were little, and now they are still so great with their fans. We’ve just grown up with them.”

The pair have had some one-on-one encounters with various New Kids over the years. At one point, a member of the fan duo’s crew of friends even got Donnie Wahlberg’s cellphone number.

“Ever since we got it we’ve been harassing him on that number for free tickets to things,” laughed Parness. “But I guess the number belongs to some NFL player now.”

Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy are big Hollywood stars now living the “perfect little suburban life.”

The couple, who wed in 2014, live in St. Charles, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

“I grew up in Chicago and then my best friend moved to the suburbs and I looked at her Facebook photos of all of her kids playing and I said, ‘We have to move there,’” McCarthy said today on “Good Morning America.”

“He said, ‘Let’s do it,’” she said of Wahlberg. “So now we have kind of like this perfect little suburban life.”

The couple’s life in St. Charles will be on full display when the third season of their reality TV show, “Donnie Loves Jenny,” premieres tonight on A&E.

“I’m a big city boy from Boston so it’s a whole different lifestyle for us and, you know, all the different things we run into in the small town really create a lot of funny moments for us,” Wahlberg said.

Wahlberg also stars on the TV drama “Blue Bloods” and another reality show, “Wahlburgers,” that follows his famous family and their restaurant business. He’ll also be appearing on a third reality show, “Rock This Boat,” that will document his band, New Kids on the Block, on their annual cruise with fans.

“Sometimes I do get confused,” Wahlberg said of appearing on four different TV shows. “Sometimes I yell during my interviews. She’s like, ‘That’s ‘Wahlburgers’ talk. That’s not ‘Donnie Loves Jenny’ talk.'”  []
