The Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks will team up with energy supplier Constellation to host a community greening event on Friday, July 12 at the Westhaven Park Gardens located near the United Center. Volunteers from each organization along with children from the community will help beautify the gardens by cleaning up the area and adding new plants and flowers. The Bulls, Blackhawks and Constellation will donate four new flower beds to the Westhaven Park Gardens.

In 2012, Constellation was named “The Official Energy Provider” for both organizations through the 2015-16 seasons. Through the partnership, Constellation also sponsored both teams’ “Go Green” games held at the United Center in April.
