Bears Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs has a heart for underprivileged children, and his foundation is hosting the event at Lumen in Chicago on April 12.
"'A Reason to Dream' is a way that we can make a change in our community and give kids a reason to dream," Briggs said.
Briggs4kidz will feature other NFL players, including Jerry Azumah and Tim Shaw, as well as community VIPs.
Briggs4Kidz (www.lance-briggs.com/foundation) focuses on raising funds and providing guidance for poverty stricken youth. The foundation also helps children in Lance's hometown of Sacramento, as well as Phoenix.
General tickets purchased this month are $55 while VIP tickets are $155. They are available through his website.
