Bulls opened the Green Reading & Technology Center today

The Bulls' Green Reading event, which we reported on earlier this week, took place earlier today at Pope John Paul II Catholic School in Chicago.

Bulls forward Tyrus Thomas hosted the opening of the Green Reading & Technology Center at the School. Thomas, together with Bob Love and Benny the Bull, was on hand for an official ribbon cutting ceremony to welcome a group of students to the newly renovated space which was constructed entirely with environmentally friendly and energy efficient materials.

Later on Thomas read out loud from “Planet Earth Gets Well.” As we reported, the Bulls donated 100 copies of the book to the school and partner with Eco-Libris, a green business that works to balance out the paper used for books by planting trees. In honor of the donation, 100 trees will be planted with Eco-Libris!

Here's a link to the press release of the Bulls. We hope to bring you photos from this exciting event very soon.
