Salsa and Sox!
Thursday, September 2, 2010
On September 13, White Sox Charities and the Ozzie Guillen Foundation will hold a very special, and historic, event – Salsa and Stars with Ozzie Guillen & Friends – the foundation’s inaugural fundraising event in the United States. The event, a fundraiser to help families and children in crisis served by White Sox Charities and the Guillen Foundation, is going to be highlighted by what has been described to me as a “once-in-a-lifetime” salsa jam session with Ruben Blades, Tito Nieves, Gilberto Santa Rosa and Ocho y Mas.
“Salsa and Stars with Ozzie Guillen & Friends” will be held at the River East Arts Center, here in Chicago, and along with the salsa jam session guests will enjoy unlimited cocktails and hors d’oeuvers, have the opportunity to participate in a spectacular live and silent auction, and will receive some very special personal gifts from Ozzie.
I can tell you that both Ozzie and his wonderful wife Ibis have been intimately involved in the planning of the event. The Ozzie Guillen Foundation, founded in 1998 by Guillen and his wife Ibis, is one of the most trusted and respected organizations of its kind in Venezuela. Established with the goal to improve the lives of children touched by cancer and their families, the foundation has expanded its reach to support foster children and families, and to enhance educational opportunities for some of Venezuela’s most underserved youth.
It promises to be an extraordinary night for White Sox Charities and the Ozzie Guillen Foundation…don’t miss it, get your tickets today!
Tickets ($350 each) for the event are available here at whitesox.com or by calling (312) 674-5387.
