Chicago Bear Brandon Marshall will host Limelight, a special event dedicated to promoting mental health awareness, on Friday, October 10, at Morgan Manufacturing (401 N. Morgan). Guests will enjoy great music, fun food, signature drinks and the chance to mix and mingle with some of Brandon's teammates and other Chicago luminaries.
Limelight will benefit The Brandon Marshall Foundation as well as Thresholds, one of the oldest and largest non-profit providers of mental health services in Illinois. Marshall has been very open about his struggle with Borderline Personality Disorder and he has already made great strides in working to eliminate its stigma.
An incredible online auction offers bidders the chance to attend a private skills camp with Marshall and 15 friends; a week in Scotland and a Chicago Bears luxury suite for two during a game. The top auction highlight is a VIP jet-set experience with the football star to NYC where you and a friend will fly via private jet to the Big Apple for a taping of Showtime's "Inside the NFL". Meet the cast and crew including Phil Simms, Boomer Esiason, Ed Reed and Greg Gumble as well as other guests of the show. Enjoy a privately catered dinner with Brandon as you fly back to Chicago.
