2012 Corporate Kickball Tournament – A Ball of Fun for Everyone!

  1. Updates

IMC Financial Markets, Schiff Hardin LLP, and Konica Minolta all came out for a day of fun, sun, friendly competition and team-building at Chicago's famous Grant Park.  Schiff Hardin walked away with the first ever Golden Bean trophy. We also had an amazing group of corporate volunteers from October Three, LLC.

We can't wait for next year's games! Through the continuous, and playful of course, support of our corporate sponsors and partners, we are able to reach thousands of students in under-resourced areas of the city each day. 

Our volunteer photographers did a wonderful job capturing the event. Please make sure to check out more of their great shots here

A big whoosh clap to the teams and all the volunteers for their help in making Playwork Chicago's first corporate kickball  tournament a smashing success!
