CHICAGO – The Chicago White Sox today announced a limited number of additional FANtastic Faces, the initiative allowing fans to purchase a cardboard cutout of their likeness displayed at Guaranteed Rate Field, will be on sale to the general public Friday, September 4 at noon at whitesox.com/fantasticfaces.
Back by popular demand, the FANtastic Faces will be available for $49 each, while supplies last. The newest cardboard crowd additions will be displayed in the ballpark during the Wintrust Crosstown Series, beginning Friday, September 25.
“Our initial round of FANtastic Faces gathered so many wonderful stories from White Sox fans around the country,” said Christine O’Reilly, White Sox vice president of community relations and Chicago White Sox Charities executive director. “From a season ticket holder’s clone army down the first base line to celebrating meaningful fan traditions like long-time Opening Day streaks, it brought together our fans during a season when we watch White Sox baseball apart. We are so thrilled to offer another chance for more fans to take part in this unique program, while supporting our charitable efforts.”
This is the final opportunity to purchase an authenticated cut-out and take home a piece of this unique 2020 season. White Sox fans interested in creating a cutout can submit a photo following the guidelines found at whitesox.com/fantasticfaces.
Net proceeds from this second sale will add to the more than $50,000 the initiative already raised for Chicago White Sox Charities (CWSC), which provides annual financial, in-kind and emotional support to hundreds of Chicago-based organizations.
As the White Sox 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, CWSC works tirelessly to lift up those most in need throughout the Chicagoland area. Through initiatives like FANtastic Faces, CWSC raises funds to promote youth education and advancement, share the love of the game through youth baseball initiatives, assist children and families in crisis and champion those battling cancer. Since its inception in 1990, CWSC has donated more than $35 million to non-profit organizations across the city and surrounding areas.
