Fifth Third Bank Welcomes Charles "Peanut" Tillman
Chicago, May 5, 2010 - Fifth Third Bank (Chicago) will welcome Chicago Bears Left Cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman to its Riverside Plaza banking center, located at 222 S. Riverside Plaza, on Monday, May 24 for an autograph session in support of Tillman's Cornerstone Foundation.
"Fifth Third Bank is proud to support the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation," said Tim Hannahs, Senior Vice President, Managing Director Fifth Third Private Bank. "Charles Tillman's charitable efforts have impacted the lives of over one million Chicago-area children. We're honored to have him as our guest."
Tillman has started 73 of 83 career games for the Bears at left Cornerback and leads the team with 20 interceptions since being drafted in 2003. And his career stats - 15 forced fumbles, 63 career pass deflections and 499 tackles - rank among the highest in the NFL. A passionate supporter of the Chicago community, Tillman is one of only seventeen NFL players chosen to be a 2008 NFL Neighborhood MVP based on their commitment to their community.
"I'm thankful for Fifth Third Bank's support of my Cornerstone Foundation," Tillman said. "We depend on this kind of support to impact hundreds of thousands of children and their families each year."
Tillman founded the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation to help improve the lives of critically and chronically ill children throughout Chicago after his youngest daughter was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that required a transplant.
