Cornerstone Foundation Presents: A Night of Whirlyball with Charles Tillman

September 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join Charles Tillman’s Cornerstone Foundation on Sept. 25 for a thrilling night of competition to benefit critically ill children and their families. Hosted by former Chicago Bear Charles “Peanut” Tillman and his wife, Jackie, the evening will include games, a silent auction, dinner, cocktails, celebrity guests, and a chance to win fun prizes!

Teams will compete against each other in three exciting games: whirlyball (which combines lacrosse, hockey, basketball, and bumper cars), bowling, and laser tag. Guests can organize a group of friends to make up a team of five or can upgrade to include a special celebrity guest to join them as they battle for the win. The group with the highest total points after all games are completed will be awarded the grand prize: tickets to the Nov. 11 Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions game in Charles’ suite with Charles! Prizes will also be awarded for the best team name, the person with the top laser tag score, the highest bowling score, and the worst bowling score. Guests who’d prefer to skip the competition are welcome to buy general admission tickets and will have access to the silent auction, dinner buffet, and bars and can play giant Jenga and giant Cornhole against their friends. The dinner buffet will include a craft pizza bar, an abundant selection of bar food offerings, and an ice cream bar for dessert. A full bar will also be offered. The unique silent auction will feature items such as a “Weekend Staycation” that includes dinner at Harry Caray’s with Charles Tillman, an overnight stay at the new luxury hotel St. Jane, and tickets to a Bears game; a Chicago Blackhawks package that includes 4 tickets to a game, a postgame locker room tour and an autographed jersey; a signed 2008 Bears team helmet; a signed Cam Newton Jersey; an original “Chicago Fire” script signed by actors Taylor Kinney and Miranda Rae Mayo; restaurant gift cards; and many other items. Free parking for guests will be available at the venue.

All proceeds from the event will go toward funding the Tiana Fund, a micro-grant program that aids critically ill children and families in need that will strengthen their ability to care for themselves, enhance their stability and security, and improve their quality of life or their ability to contribute to the community.
