Pro Bowl cornerback and 2013 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, Charles "Peanut" Tillman, announced his Foundation's fundraising partnership with Fabulous Freddies on 31st. The restaurant will donate $2 to the Peanut Tillman Cornerstone Foundation for every jumbo pizza they sell during the professional football season. The offer is good for Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays, all day. The Foundation's mission is to improve the lives of critically and chronically ill children throughout greater Chicago by providing daily support and life-changing experiences.
"The football season always brings a smile to my face, and I'm all about spreading a little cheer to families that just really need a reason to smile," says Tillman. "Freddies is focused on family and community and working with them is a great fit."
Peanut kicked off the fundraising in Freddies' kitchens, cooking with the family and sharing stories about growing up in Chicago.
"We're thrilled to be able to bring our customer community together in support of this great cause," add second-generation owners Christie, Stephanie, and Brittany Bertucci. "In addition to the great feeling that comes from giving, our jumbo-pizza-ordering customers will get the added benefit of receiving a Charles Tillman autographed Pizza Playmaker card. It's just our way of thanking them for supporting families in need."
