White Castle Wrestling is back in 2022! ThunderBolts become Windy City Sliders with special jerseys!

 

Fans of the Windy CIty ThunderBolts are very familiar with White Castle.  After all, you don't see White Castle Sliders shot off the grandstand roof to a fan on the field holding a fishing net at any ballpark other than Ozinga Field.  The Windy City ThunderBolts are pleased to announce an exciting addition to our long-time partnership with White Castle.

For the six Wrestling Nights in 2022, the ThunderBolts will play as the Windy City Sliders and will wear jerseys specifically designed with the White Castle logo.  These one-of-a-kind jerseys will be auctioned off with proceeds to benefit White Castle's corporate charitable program, Castle Shares.  

Fans can bid on these rare jerseys (image below) throughout the season at the link below!  The auction will close at 9:00 pm on September 1st, which is the last White Castle Wrestling Night of the 2022 season and the ThunderBolts season finale. 

ThunderBolts Assistant General Manager Bill Waliewski stated, "While it might sound cliche', the folks at White Castle have truly become part of the ThunderBolts' family over the last several years.  Since White Castle has become synonymous with our Wrestling Nights, it is just natural for the ThunderBolts to rebrand as the Sliders on our Wrestling nights.  Our fans love White Castle so we expect that the demand for these jerseys will surpass any jersey auctions we have done in the past.  With the proceeds of the auction going to Castle Shares, this is a promotion that is a win for everybody. Plus, it is going to be a ton of fun".

About Castle Shares charity

For decades we've been involved in our communities, understanding and owning our responsibility not just to serve our customers in the neighborhoods where our buildings exist, but to uplift, bring together and enhance their experiences. Our commitment to community involvement has evolved organically to become an immense source of pride and pleasure for our people, now formally recognized as the corporate charitable program we call Castle Shares.

Everyone on our team knows that White Castle isn't just about making Craveable food — we seek to make a difference in our communities by feeding hunger, hopes and dreams. Through our involvement, the White Castle family helps build strong, thriving Craver communities.

Founder Billy Ingram believed in taking care of people and giving back to the community, and as a family-owned business, we're proud to continue making this philosophy our focus.

Every year White Castle and the Ingram-White Castle Foundation donate over $2 million to a variety of charities across the nation, including including over $8 million for Autism Speaks in the last 10 years. The White Castle family supports more than 50 charities each year with volunteers, money and food donations. And our people follow that example by supporting their neighborhoods on their own time, for causes that Feed their Souls.
