HOFFMAN ESTATES -- The Windy City Bulls recently receives the 2019-20 NBA G League Promotion of the Year Award.

The award is presented each year to the G League franchise that best exemplifies the creation and execution of "a unique idea with the potential to positively impact local business and the community." The Windy City Bulls received the award in recognition of the team's "Chuck Jones Big Draw Night" featuring Looney Tunes, presented by ZENNI, which took place on Jan. 4, 2020 in partnership with the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, and benefiting the backyard experience, a local art education organization based in Schaumburg.


The event included a first for the NBA G League with both the Windy City Bulls and the visiting Westchester Knicks wearing special Looney Tunes themed jersey sets that were auctioned to fans of both teams. Windy City's jerseys featured a Marvin the Martian design while the Knicks donned Tasmanian Devil-themed jerseys and proceeds from the auction were donated to the backyard experience.

The Windy City Bulls play home games in Hoffman Estates as members of the NBA G League, the official development league of the National Basketball Association.
