Magellan Expands Partnership

Magellan Corporation, a leading global distributor of specialty steel, has inked a multi-year agreement to extend its partnership with the Chicago Sky. The enhanced agreement includes the addition of the Magellan logo, which will be displayed in the upper left shoulder of all Sky jerseys.

“Our ongoing partnership with the Chicago Sky has yielded an excellent return on investment and, just as importantly, has provided us with the opportunity to promote some of the Chicagoland charitable organizations we support,” said Bob Arthur, President of Magellan Corporation.

As part of its continued commitment to philanthropy, Magellan Corporation and the Chicago Sky will collaborate to help promote a number of the charitable organizations that Magellan supports including Gilda’s Club, La Rabida Children’s Hospital, The Old Town School of Folk Music, and the DuSable Museum of African American History, among others. Each charity Magellan supports will be the beneficiary of additional awareness and funds raised as the featured charity at a Sky game during the 2015 season. The individual charity logos will be represented on the Sky’s 2015 shooting shirts during their featured game and each of these game-worn shirts will be auctioned off in-arena. Courtside Seats will feature Gilda’s Club Chicago, Old Town School of Folk Music, La Rabida Children’s Museum and DuSable African American History Museum seat covers. A schedule for Magellan’s charity nights is listed below:

· July 21st—African American Heritage Night benefitting DuSable Museum of African American History
· August 9th –Breast Health Awareness Night benefitting Gilda’s Club
· August 21st—Faith and Family Night benefitting La Rabida Children’s Hospital
· September 6th—Music Appreciation Night on benefitting Old Town School of Folk Music

“We are thrilled to have Magellan on our team,” said Sky President and CEO Adam Fox. “We share Magellan’s deep passion for serving our community. This is not only a mutually-beneficial promotional alliance showcasing two strong corporate citizens; this is the start of a very strong community partnership that will enrich lives and continue to show the world what’s possible.”

Founded in 1985, Magellan Corporation, a SeaTrade company, is headquartered in Deerfield, Ill. The company has a deep sense of social responsibility and strong commitment to community involvement.
