White Sox celebrate 10th annual 'Sox Serve Week'

Campaign features six days of community outreach, fundraising on June 11-16

The Chicago White Sox will celebrate Sox Serve Week -- its 10th annual community outreach and fundraising campaign benefitting Chicago White Sox Charities (CWSC) -- beginning Monday, June 11, through Saturday, June 16. Sox Serve Week engages Sox fans and the Chicagoland community through outreach events that feature current players and special fundraising opportunities. Sox Serve Week is presented in partnership with Beggars Pizza, Goose Island Beer Co., Guaranteed Rate, Magellan Corporation, Proven IT, United Airlines and Wintrust Community Banks.
 
"Sox Serve Week is the best way to demonstrate our continual commitment to making the community a better place to live, work and play beyond the diamond," said Christine O'Reilly, White Sox vice president of community relations. "The week-long campaign takes a moment during the busy season to highlight the important work that is done all year round. It's an incredible statement to see everyone from the organization participate -- including coaches, players and their wives, front office staff and Volunteer Corps members."
 
Sox Serve Week includes a series of outreach events that involve White Sox players and team personnel giving back to the community. In addition, fans viewing and attending games during the week can participate in a number of unique fundraising activities. The campaign has raised more than $1.5 million for CWSC in the last nine years.
