Tartan Art Celebrity Golf Balls!
OAK BROOK (July 14, 2012)- With nearly two months to go until Tartan Art hits The Magnificent Mile, several celebrities have lent their signatures, and in some cases, actual painting skills, to the Magnificent Moment Campaign!
NBA and Chicago legend Michael Jordan is the latest to commit to Tartan Art, and will sign a special “Jumpman” golf ball. He joins several other Chicago athletes who will add their names to decorative golf balls. Chicago Bears Hall of Famers Mike Ditka and Richard Dent joined six other current and former Bears players in signing a Chicago Bears golf ball. And most Chicago professional sports teams (Blackhawks, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox) are involved in the project, as are the Green Bay Packers.
From the golf world, both current Ryder Cup Captains, Davis Love III and Jose Maria Olazabal, are commissioning Tartan Art. PGA Pros Luke Donald, Steve Stricker, and Mark Wilson all signed the First Tee of Greater Chicago golf ball, and Wilson collaborated on the Humana golf ball. And Luke Donald, having majored in Art at Northwestern University, will be working together with current Northwestern art students to actually paint a golf ball. He’s joined by Professional Women’s golfer Michelle Wie, who is also trying her hand at personally painting the OMEGA Watch golf ball!
And on the celebrity side, recent American Idol competitor and recording artist Haley Reinhart will sign a musically-inspired golf ball, as will actress and model Jenny McCarthy.
Each of these golf balls will go on display on Michigan Avenue September 13th. These golf balls can be yours for a $15,000 charitable gift. In return, we’ll include your corporate logo or name on the base plaque and more than 50,000 people will be able to see your golf ball EACH DAY until October 10th. After the display, the golf ball is yours to keep! Keep checking back for more celebrity additions!
