“Often times, we see the glitz and glamour of galas and golf events of the sports stars that we love. NBC Sports Chicago wanted to bring you what these charities and athletes bring to the city of Chicago and beyond with the funds raised from these events.

Brent Seabrook embraced Chicago from the moment he signed with the Blackhawks. A few months into his rookie year, he donated hockey equipment to kids on Chicago‚Äôs southside. The Inner City Education program and the Blackhawks have partnered for 14 years and raised over a million dollars to change lives and create opportunities that would not normally exist for families. For Seabrook, it is the least he can do for a city that has given so much to him.”
