Windy City Bulls to host Deaf Awareness Night, with Zach LaVine as one of its biggest supporters

On January 12, the Windy City Bulls are slated to host a Deaf Awareness Night, as they take on the Greensboro Swarm.

During the game, the Bulls will wear specially made jerseys that spell out B-U-L-L-S in American Sign Language.

Later on, the uniforms will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Illinois Association for the Deaf.

For fans wondering why there is a Zach LaVine Windy City Bulls available, LaVine has long had a relationship with raising deaf awareness dating back to high school.

He formed a special relationship with the deaf community when he made the Metro Deaf School in St. Paul, Minnesota the target of his community outreach during his time with the Timberwolves.

LaVine also was a staunch supporter of Starbucks opening up the first U.S. “signing store” location, where every employee is fluent in American Sign Language (ASL).

The Windy City Bulls Deaf Awareness Night will have the doors open (at the Sears Centre Arena) at 6 p.m. on January 12, and interpreters will be provided.
