CHICAGO -- Three winning ticket numbers for the Chicago White Sox Charities 2005 World Series Ring Raffle will be announced prior to the game on Thursday, August 10. The winning numbers will be unveiled jointly on Comcast SportsNet and on the ballpark scoreboard during pregame ceremonies at U.S. Cellular Field.

The three lucky fans will own a priceless piece of White Sox history. The rings, the exact same as those received by the players on April 4, are 14-karat gold and feature 95 diamonds. The three winners will have their rings personalized.

"Three White Sox fans will be very happy Thursday night when the winning numbers are unveiled," said Scott Reifert, president of Chicago White Sox Charities. "The terrific response from our fans to this fundraising raffle is a great testament to the pride Chicago has in the World Champions, the excitement generated by the magical 2005 World Series and the generous nature of our fans."

Chicago White Sox Charities generated more than $870,000 with the sale of 43,550 raffle tickets to White Sox fans at $20 apiece. The charity raffle, which was announced on April 5, ran from April 14 through July 31. Raffle tickets were available for purchase at U.S. Cellular Field and online to Illinois residents at

The three winners do not have to be present at Thursday's game to win. Once the three winners have been identified, they will be presented their rings in an on-field ceremony before a White Sox game in September. Fans in possession of the winning numbers have until October 1 to claim their prize.
