About the Young Professionals Council

The Council is a group of 20 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.
