A Collector’s Dream

White Sox Charities Auction.jpgThursday, January 27, 2011

We have an amazing opportunity for all you White Sox collectors! During the opening ceremony of last weekend’s SoxFest, expressionist speed painter Elliott From of “Artbeat Live!”created a one-of-a-kind White Sox canvas art piece that is currently being auctioned off to benefit the Chicago White Sox Charities.

The original piece was signed by White Sox team members Paul Konerko, Mark Buehrle, Adam Dunn, Matt Thornton, Chris Sale, Sergio Santos, John Danks, Ramon Castro, Juan Pierre, Brent Morel, Alexei Ramirez, Jesse Crain, Harold Baines, Mark Salas and Ron Kittle.

You may remember Elliott from the Blackhawk’s championship season when he created a Blackhawks logo on the WGN Midday News, or the giant Blackhawks mural he painted on the outside of Tribune Tower before and after the Stanley Cup Championship (Go Blackhawks!).

Other Artbeat Live creations are owned by Mike Ditka, Alfonso Soriano, Hotel Intercontinental, WGN Radio, and the Chicago Police Department. Most importantly, all the money goes towards Chicago White Sox Charities, which provides annual financial, in-kind and emotional support to hundreds of Chicago-based organizations, including those leading the fight against cancer, improving the lives of Chicago’s youth through education and recreation, and supporting children and families in crisis.

The auction ends February 1, 2011 – so bid now and be sure to check back to make sure you’re still on top.
