Bears coach Lovie Smith and his wife Maryanne recently served as the honorary chairs for the American Diabetes Association annual brunch at the Soldier Field United Club.
The event raises money for diabetes research, programs and advocacy.
Smith will be the featured speaker at By the Hand Club of Kids' annual Spring Benefit on April 8 at Soldier Field, and he is also also currently serving as the spokesperson for Ronald McDonald House Charities.
A new house is being constructed in Chicago and the Bears are actively supporting the cause. Bears Care, the charitable beneficiary of the Chicago Bears, donated $10,000 to fund a "Bears Room" at the new house.
