LaSalle Bank, the Chicago White Sox and Literacy Chicago Host Book Drive on Friday, July 23
Tuesday, July 20, 2004


LaSalle Bank, the Chicago White Sox and Literacy Chicago have teamed up to fight illiteracy among Chicago's youth and provide hundreds of books for underprivileged children.

On Friday, July 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the 135 South LaSalle Street building's lobby, Chicago White Sox player Mark Buehrle will autograph a photo for the first 100 people who bring a book for donation to Literacy Chicago. Books should be new or gently used and for preschool-aged children; books can also be purchased at the Books A Million store in the Bank's lobby the morning of the event.

As part of Literacy Chicago's Reach Out and Read Book Drive, all LaSalle Bank branches will have book collection bins in their lobbies during the entire month of August. Books also can be brought to LaSalle Bank Book Day at U.S. Cellular Field on Sunday, August 22, 2004, when the Chicago White Sox host the Boston Red Sox.

I'm at LaSalle and Jackson...next to CBOT. With all of us Sox fans down here, you'd think that there'd be a lot of mullets and fights. I'm surprised people still want to come downtown...the crime rate must be sky rocketing!

Wells, before Washington. Its a dive bar, but has real good bar food.Just under the Washington/Wells station. Not really a dive, considering it's downtown, but they got PBR. Unfortunately, I usually take my lunch earlier(I start at 7), but I'll be down for a late innings drink around 3-4.

I work at the Merc and I'd love to go to the Buehrle/Burhly/Burly/Buhrle signing, but I dont think I'll be able to get out. Even if I got there at 11:30 there would probably already be 100 there.
