Gio’s Game Changers
Last season, Lucas Giolito launched Gio’s Game Changers, a program that combines his passion to support youth empowerment and love for animals. As part of the program, Giolito connected with athletes from the White Sox Amateur City Elite (ACE) program through a pitching tutorial and Q&A session at the ballpark. Through virtual mentorship sessions, he also teamed up with Safe Humane Chicago, an organization that pairs shelter dogs with youth overcoming traumatic life experiences, and invited their team to its first-ever major-league game. Additionally, Giolito has made significant financial donations to support the following organizations: ACE, Lurie Children’s Hospital, PAWS Chicago, Safe Humane Chicago, One Tail at a Time, Wright Way Rescue, Trio Animal Foundation, and the Anti-Cruelty Society.
“After how amazing the South Side community has been to me the past few years, I thought it was time to give back. I have a passion for helping animals as well as the youth, and I want to be a resource that they can count on.” - Lucas Giolito
