CHICAGO, August 4, 2010 – The Chicago Sky announced today that it will host an auction of one-of-a-kind silver-themed dresses, autographed Sky photos and other sports memorabilia at its games on August 7 and August 10 as part of Breast Health Awareness week in the WNBA.
Sky athletes have been paired up with independent fashion designers from around Chicago and the results are amazing. The designers have produced beautiful custom made silver-themed dresses for each player. On Friday, August 6 the Sky will hold a photo shoot that is open to the media and the resulting photos will be autographed and auctioned to benefit Sky Cares Foundation and A Silver Lining Foundation.
Sylvia Fowles and the Sky will take on the Minnesota Lynx on August 7 at 2pm and the Phoenix Mercury on August 10 at 7pm, both at Allstate Arena. The silent auction will take place throughout both games in the East lobby. In addition to the autographed photos and the dresses themselves, memorabilia from other professional Chicago sports teams will be available to bid on.
