All proceeds from An Evening with the Chicago Bulls will support the Chicago Bulls Charities. Under the leadership of the charity’s President Nancy Reinsdorf and Vice President Leslie Forman, Chicago Bulls Charities provides annual financial support to Chicagoland nonprofit organizations that share the Bulls’ commitment to youth education, youth health and wellness, violence prevention, and military and first responder support. Chicago Bulls Charities and the entire Bulls basketball family work to address community concerns and find ways for the organization to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.
