AT&T LAUNCHES NATIONAL SWEEPSTAKES PROGRAM TO

FOSTER SCHOOL SPIRIT AMONG THE NATION'S HBCUs 

Schools Battle for the Spirit of UNCF Title and Incredible On-Campus Experiences

The school year just kicked off but the competition nationwide among historically black college and university (HBCU) campuses is about to get fierce. AT&T* announced today the launch of the “Spirit of UNCF” voting sweepstakes and HBCU rivalries will start heating up. The sweepstakes gives HBCU students, alumni and supporters a new way to show their school spirit by voting online or via text for their favorite HBCU. The battle begins Monday, Sept. 21, 2009 and ends midnight on Friday, Nov. 13, 2009.

“The sweepstakes are more than a contest, the program promotes school spirit and taps into the existing camaraderie among HBCU students and alumni,” said Jenn if er L. Jones, vice president Diverse Markets, AT&T Operations Inc. "Our goal is to highlight UNCF's long-standing history as a national advocate for minority education through a fun and relevant program that engages parents, students and the academic community."

The HBCU with the most votes at the end of the competition wins the right to reign as the Spirit of UNCF. At stake are two incredible on-campus experiences: a campus-to-community technology education fair powered by AT&T Technology and an exclusive Hollywood-styled red carpet campus viewing party, complete with a celebrity host from the 2010 UNCF An Evening of Stars ® Tribute to Lionel Richie presented by Target. One lucky voter will also win a complete AT&T Technology makeover and VIP trip for two to the live taping of An Evening of Stars ® for next year.

Are you battle ready? Cast your vote for your favorite HBCU online at www.att.com/spirit or by texting VOTE to 65579. The Spirit of UNCF interactive Web site is the premier meeting space for you to read about contest details, view and submit alumni success stories and go head-to-head with rival HBCUs. Once there, you can sign up to receive mobile alerts and take advantage of exclusive AT&T offers.

"We are excited about the buzz the Spirit of UNCF sweepstakes will generate for An Evening of Stars ® and UNCF ," said Michael L. Lomax, Ph.D., UNCF president and CEO. "But more importantly, we are thankful for the contributions of AT&T and music legends like Lionel Richie, who are helping to make sure that all Americans have the opportunity to get the college degrees that they need and that the country needs them to have."  

The winning HBCU will be announced on Monday, Nov. 16, 2009 with the individual sweepstakes winner announcement to follow.  The on-campus rewards will occur on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010, to coincide with the national televised airing of AEOS on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, and CW affiliates and nationally on BET Networks and WGN. 

Any person 18 years or older residing in the continental U.S. is eligible to vote in support of their school and win. Each vote serves as one sweepstakes entry. Voting is limited to two votes per day, per person using any combination of voting methods. For more information please visit www.att.com/spirit .

THE WNBA CHICAGO SKY TAKES ON CELEBRITY ENTERTAINMENT LEAGUE IN

A BASKETBALL BATTLE OF THE SEXES

CHICAGO, March 12, 2009 –The Chicago Sky will host the first-ever Basketball Battle of the Sexes game when the WNBA Sky will suit up to take on an all-male team from the Entertainment League (E League) on June 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the UIC Pavilion. The game will be played with WNBA official rules, including WNBA referees, three-point line, shot clock, and official WNBA basketball.

The E League is composed of elite names in film, television and music who are talented in their respective industries and on the court. The E League plays every Sunday from November through April and is currently in its 12th season. The league consists of 16 teams playing a 15-game schedule, plus playoffs. The E League was originally formed in 1999 under the National Basketball Association umbrella in an effort to develop relationships within the entertainment industry, as well as give those within the industry who love basketball an authentic and private environment in which to compete. The E League is currently owned and operated by Entertainment League Productions (ELP). Along with participating within the E League, these celebrity athletes travel across the globe to participate in various community activities including charity games for local and national organizations.

For the Chicago Sky match up the E League roster includes actors and Chicago natives Michael Clark Duncan ( The Green Mile ) and Larenz Tate ( Crash ). They will team up with Grammy nominated artists Brian McKnight and Nelly, James Lafferty (One Tree Hill ) and 2008 E League MVP Donald Faison ( Scrubs ). Rounding out the roster are actors Frankie Muniz ( Malcolm in the Middle ), Columbus Short ( Cadillac Records ), Jay Harrington ( Better off Ted ) and comedian Bill Bellamy.

“I am looking forward to The Basketball Battle of the Sexes,” states Academy Award nominated actor Michael Clarke Duncan who plays Center in the E League. “It is great to come back to my hometown as a part of the E League and have the opportunity to play (and win) against the talented women of the Chicago Sky.”

“I'm looking forward to the game! Playing against guys is nothing new for me and most of my teammates, we grew up playing against the guys in the neighborhood parks and in college,” said Sky center and USA gold medal winner Sylvia Fowles. “They might be surprised as to how strong, physical, and talented we are. It will be a fun and competitive game.”

“This is a pre-season game for us, and just like any other opponent we are taking this challenge very seriously,” said General Manager and Head Coach Steven Key. “The timing of the game is great for us, it's our last pre-season game before tipping off the season on the road, and playing a team of talented and experienced male players will challenge our team mentally and physically, further preparing them for the upcoming season.”

“We are bringing a great cross-section of celebrity and basketball talent from the Entertainment League for this “battle against the Sky,” says Shane Duffy, Commissioner of the E League and Co-Founder of Entertainment League Productions. “We are excited to showcase the E League's ability to play competitive ball with some of the WNBA's best players. The Sky will be surprised at the high level these celebrities are capable of and we expect a great contest. Without question the E league will be looking for the win."

The Sky is scheduled to play four pre-season games, with the fourth and final game against an all male roster with players skilled and dedicated to the fundamental game of basketball. The Sky tip-off their 2009 season on June 6 at Minnesota , and will host their season home opener on Friday, June 12 against Atlanta at 7:30pm at the UIC Pavilion.

Fans are encouraged to secure their celebrity game tickets now, as availability may be limited when 2009 Sky single game tickets become available for purchase in April. Fans can purchase their Battle of the Sexes tickets through a variety of packages that are available now, starting at $52, by calling 866-SKY-WNBA or by visiting www.chicagosky.net .

“If you follow the Sky you know that our players are young, fun, and entertaining both on and off the court, so it's no wonder the Sky created a unique opportunity to prepare for the 2009 season in an equally fun approach,” said Sky President and CEO Margaret Stender. “This is an exciting opportunity for new and returning fans to watch their favorite stars take on their favorite Sky players.”

Founded in 2008, Entertainment League Productions (ELP) is the premier sports entertainment marketing and production company. Combining the experience and expertise of partners Felisa Israel and Shane Duffy, both former long-time NBA executives, ELP is the definitive service for the production and execution of celebrity focused sporting events and talent bookings. The Entertainment League, a division of ELP, is a private celebrity basketball league comprised of movie stars, recording artists, directors, producers and Hollywood elite. For more information about ELP, visit www.eleagueproductions.com or www.eleague.ning.com .

The Sky is one of six independently-owned teams in the WNBA, the world's longest-running women's professional sports league. Chicago finished fifth in the Eastern Division with a 12-22 record in their third season. Sylvia Fowles, Chicago 's rookie center, ranked third in blocks per game and fifth in double-doubles with six. Forward Candice Dupree ranked third in defensive rebounds, fourth in rebounds per game and third in double-doubles with nine. Guard Jia Perkins ranked fourth in the league in steals, fifth in the league in free-throw percentage and seventh in points. The Sky plays at the Chicago 's UIC Pavilion.
