About the Young Professionals Council

The purpose of the Young Professionals Council is to further support the mission of Chicago White Sox Charites (CWSC) by assisting with fundraising efforts, actively engaging the local community and expanding the reach of the impact made by young individuals in the Chicagoland area.

The Council is a group of about 25 promising young leaders between the ages of 23 and 39 who share the same love and passion for the White Sox and the mission of White Sox Charities. The Young Professionals Council's focus is to help raise visibility of CWSC's mission and support the programs through fundraising.
