This Timbuck2uesday was a special event. The house was packed for a night of fun on a beautiful summer evening. Philadelphia based Mitchell & Ness, presided over our weekly event at the Beauty Bar in Chicago. This well-established firm is a major purveyor of authentic vintage jerseys and apparel collections for the MLB, NFL, NBA, NCAA and MLS. With DJ Boi Jeanius as emcee, Mitchell & Ness presented the foundation with a donation that had special meaning. The check was for the amount of $1,981 honoring the year Tim was born. The check was presented on stage to members of the foundation who were in attendance.
To cap off the evening, Chicago born recording artist Vic Mensa stopped by to show support. Vic Mensa, who met Tim early in his career, performed several songs and spoke of his memories of Tim. His appearance brought the evening to a different level for an appreciative audience. Vic is currently touring and enjoying the success of his new album “Autobiography”.
We would like to thank Mitchell & Ness, the Beauty Bar, DJ Boi Jeanius, Shareeff Williams and Vic Mensa for their support. We hope you will check out and support our friends at Mitchell & Ness, the Beauty Bar and Vic Mensa.
