Bulls and Dick's Sporting Goods "Shop with a Bull"
December 14, 2012 – The Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich, Taj Gibson, Marquis Teague, Nancy Reinsdorf, Leslie Forman, Larsa Pippen and Benny the Bull helped 20 teens from Gilda’s Club Chicago spend $100 gift cards courtesy of Dick’s Sporting Goods on Thursday evening.
The Bulls were on hand at the Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Glenview to offer shopping tips for the teens and helped them pick out shoes, jerseys and other athletic gear for their holiday gifts.
Before the shopping spree, the teens also enjoyed dinner provided by Bulls partners Vienna Beef and Hinckley Springs.
The Bulls coordinated the event as part of NBA Cares Season of Giving, a league-wide initiative that aims to brighten the holidays for thousands of children and families across the country.
