Francine Manilow, President of Manilow Suites, Announces Auction to Benefit the Women's Business Development Center and the Enterprising Women Foundation

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 24, 2011) - Bid to win the priceless opportunity to throw out the first pitch at the Chicago White Sox game on April 11, 2011 at U.S. Cellular Field, plus two tickets to the game and a two-night stay at a luxury Manilow Suite!

Francine Manilow, president of Manilow Suites and member of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, recently attended the Chamber's annual Burnham Awards Dinner. Although the audience at the dinner was 98 percent male, it took a woman to grasp the real value of "The Sportman's Dream Package" auction item.

Manilow offered the winning bid of $12,500. Now, she's turning around and auctioning off a portion of the package itself, with all the proceeds benefiting two leading not-for-profit women's business organizations: the Women's Business Development Center in Chicago and the Enterprising Women Foundation.

Manilow Suites is thrilled to invite you to participate! To place a bid, email with your name, phone number, and bid amount. The opening bid is $2,500.

Bidding closes on April 5, 2011 at noon Central. Each day's high bid will be listed on the What's New page of the Manilow Suites website.

For questions regarding the auction, please contact or call 312-819-0050.
