Chicago White Sox Charities (CWSC) celebrates a 26-year tradition of giving back to the Chicagoland community with $25 for 25 - the second annual 25-hour fundraising campaign. The campaign begins at noon Wednesday, May 10, and concludes at 1 p.m. Thursday, May 11.
To celebrate CWSC's next 25 years, fans are invited to support the organization's ongoing community outreach with a contribution of $25 or more during the 25-hour campaign. Donors will have the opportunity to win a new prize during each hour of the campaign, with the final hour of the campaign - from noon to 1 p.m. on Thursday, May 11 - designated as a "power hour" with the opportunity to win 25 different prizes. Fans who donate $250 or more will be invited to a private donor recognition event. Some of the prizes include:
· Jerseys autographed by Jose Abreu, Melky Cabrera, Carlton Fisk and more
· Bats autographed by Todd Frazier, Bo Jackson and more
· Baseballs autographed by Tim Anderson, Derek Holland, Paul Konerko, Yoan Moncada and more
· Tickets, fan experiences and more!
"We are truly thankful for the dedication and ongoing support we receive from our fans. The $25 for 25 campaign is a fun, digitally-driven opportunity to fundraise for our off-the-field efforts that support the Chicagoland community," said Christine O'Reilly, CWSC executive director. "Last year's campaign was a celebration of White Sox Charities' 25 years of giving. Now, we are kicking off the next 25 years with a fundraising effort that will engage our fans and staff."
