Chicago Sports Alliance Announces Donation to National Anti-Gun Violence Advocacy Organization

Chicago Cubs

The five major professional mens sports teams in Chicago – the Chicago Sports Alliance – have banded together to announce a $300,000 commitment toward supporting victims of the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and to the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a national nonprofit organization with a mission to end school shootings.

In a statement, the Alliance said, “Twenty-one smiles in Uvalde, Texas, lost. Just days before that, 10 smiles in Buffalo, lost. And unfortunately, across our own city, too many smiles lost to this same issue. It is our responsibility to those innocent lives lost to do more. We are committed to making a difference through the resources in our power to solving this gun violence epidemic. Lives depend on it. This is not a game.”
