Remember when the Chicago Sky partnered with Bright Pink to raise awareness and funds to provide high risk young women with the necessary education and support about breast health, cancer and other related issues.
The Sky hosted a PINK OUT and players wore pink uniforms and shoes which we auctioned off to raise funds. Fans also purchased pink Sky t-shirts and proceeds were donated to Bright Pink. Survivors were honored and included in the pre-game Ball Exchange where they were presented with special pink basketballs from the players.

Sky Military Appreciation Night 2012 was proudly presented by Robert Morris University and along with Jennie O, Action Floor Systems, Boost Mobile, Valor, McDonalds, Chuck E. Cheese’s Guam, Steven B. Pearlman & Associates and The Abt Family the Sky provided complimentary tickets to over 500 military veterans and personnel from the Jesse Brown Veteran’s Assistant Hospital, the North Chicago Veteran’s Assistance Hospital and many more.
Swin Cash on behalf of the Chicago Sky organization thanked them for all their hard work in a pregame speech. Military night is especially close to Swin’s heart as she has numerous family members, including her father, involved in the military.

Remember when the Sylvia Fowles, Courtney Vandersloot, Epiphanny Prince and Shay Murphy went back to elementary school...to drop off school supplies to the students of Daley Elementary School. Tables filled with school supplies were provided to the students through a grant by Wal-Mart and donations from the Sky’s players, coaches, staff and fans.
Big Syl and her team mates visited various classrooms and talked to students about the importance of education and reading before distributing the supplies to smiling students.

Remember when some of our Skyriders (Season Ticket Holders) took a road trip to Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis in September to watch the Sky take on the Indiana Fever. Skyriders enjoyed swapping their Sky experiences on the bus trip and while cheering for their favorite players they were treated to complimentary food and drinks at the game.
Exclusive experiences like this road trip are just some of the many special benefits of being a Sky season ticket holder. To join our team for 2013 call a Sky Account Executive on 866.SKY.WNBA

Remember when Ruth Riley had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at the Chicago White Sox game. Even though baseball is not her forte Ruth represented the Sky with pride and she had the support of some of her teammates and coaches while on the mound. Head Coach & GM Pokey Chatman, Assistant Coaches Jeff House & Christie Sides, along with Shay Murphy, Ticha Penicheiro and Carolyn Swords were all in attendance to cheer for Ruth.
