StorageMart, a Columbia, Mo.-based self-storage operator with more than 130 locations throughout the United States and Canada, raised $464 for Open Books, a nonprofit Chicago bookstore that promotes literacy. As part of the fundraising campaign, StorageMart gave away two tickets to a Cubs vs. White Sox baseball game this month and asked each entrant to vote for which of the two teams had the best fans. The company pledged to donate $1 for every vote.
Fans could enter the ticket drawing by submitting their votes through StorageMart’s Facebook page or company blog. After 464 votes, the Cubs edged the White Sox for the “best fans,” 51 percent to 49 percent. The winner of the game-ticket raffle was Ross Wasserstrom of Oak Park, Ill.
