Camp Fire

Art of Futbol

Tomorrow the Chicago Fire Foundation will be hosting the fifth annual Art of Fútbol Exhibition. The event, to be held at Prairie Production Studio in Chicago, will feature local artists and their original work that focuses on soccer and the love of soccer. People who attend the event will have the chance to meet many of the artists, mingle with Fire players and enjoy drinks and light appetizers while experiencing the fine artwork. Rumor has it former Fire player Gonzalo Segares and current Fire player Matt Watson will have art work displayed at the event.

Tickets to the event purchased online start at $27.24 (with fees) but there are also several options to purchase the admission with corner kick game day tickets at $37.74. (Tickets purchased at the door will be $37.74 and $53.49 with corner kick tickets). Make your way to: Prairie Productions, 1314 West Randolf Street, Chicago, IL 60607

Proceeds for the event go to support the Chicago Fire Foundation. The Fire Foundation's goal is to improve the quality of life throughout the Chicagoland area by "leveraging its resources and expertise in the area of soccer to provide sports-based youth development and direct-service programs to underserved communities." The Charitable arm of the Chicago Fire has been operating since 1998 raising more than 4.9 million for the cause.

The money raised at the event is going to a terrific community cause! Get your tickets and attend today.
