Clerk Karen A. Yarbrough is teaming up with the Chicago White Sox to offer Cook County veterans and active-duty military members a free ticket to a regular season White Sox game in September.

Veterans who sign up for the Clerk’s Veterans Discount Card program, or those who are already enrolled in the program, are being offered one free ticket for a White Sox game on September 1, 14, 15, 16, 28 or 29.

“We are so proud to partner with the Chicago White Sox to provide this wonderful benefit to our deserving veterans and members of the military,” said Yarbrough.

“The White Sox have had such a special season and as they head toward the playoffs, we thank them for their unconditional support for our veterans and members of the military every step of the way.”

All Cook County Veterans, active-duty personnel, national guard and reservists and other members of the military can apply for the free Military and Veterans Discount Program, a public-private partnership that offers reduced costs and benefits to veterans.

Veterans who already have the discount card can present it on the game day of their choice at the Box Office windows at Gate 4 at Guaranteed Rate Field within two hours of game time to receive their complimentary ticket.

Applications for the discount program can be completed at the Clerk’s Veterans Affairs Office, located at 118 N. Clark in Chicago. The office is open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. When applying, Veterans should bring their DD-214, Retired Military Card or Illinois Driver’s License or State ID with Veterans Designation.

To make an appointment or for further information call 312-603-5788.

The Clerk’s Discount Card, which is offered in partnership with the Cook County Office of Veteran’s Affairs, provides veterans with discounts on a wide range of services including food, auto repair, legal services as well as health and fitness memberships.
