Charles Tillman 5th Annual Meijer Celebrity Football Championship
Posted By:  Courtney Boeckman

blogChicago, IL- For the 5th straight year Charles has teamed up with Meijer to bring fifth the ultimate flag football experience. On Saturday, June 18, 2011 fourteen teams competed in a flag football tournament at Lake Zurich High School. Omni Team 1 was able to grab the championship title and a year’s worth of bragging rights.

Celebrity quarterbacks included current and formers Chicago Bears players Nick Roach, Eddie William, Kaseem Sinceno, Rodriques Wilson, and Kahlil Bell. Other football stars included John Beutjer, Jarrett Payton, John Walsh, Jermaine Hampton, JR Niklos, Nick Cosentino, Ryan Yarborough,  Eddie McGee and Indianapolis Colts first round draft pick, Anthony Castonzo.

Fans were invited to come get autographs and visit the Cornerstone Fan Zone which was filled of prizes and give-a-ways.  Kids were given the chance to win great prizes such as an iPod Touch and register to participate in on-field activities. Special guests, The Jesse White Tumblers, performed for the audience at 1:15 p.m. to showcase their skills and high flying talent.  

The day also featured a Proclamation by the Governor to announce that June 18th to be known as Charles Tillman Family Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Day. Fans had the chance to gather information about organ and tissue donation and register to be an organ donor in the Fan Zone.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation, whose mission is to provide opportunities and resources to children or their families who are in need.  Since 2005, Charles Tillman's charitable efforts have impacted the lives of more than one million Chicago-area children.
