Bears doing good stuff

Its too easy to gloss over the little Bears things that happen away from Halas Hall that are worth mentioning. There are a few this week:

The Bears and some league rules dont allow rookie hazing but Chairman George McCaskey is putting the top of the 2012 class doing some dirty work, literally. McCaskey and draft picks Shea McClellin, Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Hardin will get together Friday morning with other volunteers and plant new trees and shrubs at LaFollette Park, 1333 N. Laramie in Chicago (When the chairman says, Lets go plant some trees! its volunteering, right? Just kidding it is, actually).

The work runs from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is part of the organizations Save Da Planet program that involves a number of organizations dedicated to conservation and sustainability.

Cornerback Charles Tillman seems to be taking his first selection to the Pro Bowl seriously. Tillman is hosting the Pro BOWLer Charity Fundraiser Thursday evening from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Kings Lakes Lounge & Sports, 5505 Park Place, MB Financial Park in Rosemont.

The bowling fundraiser is intended to benefit the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation and its work to improve the lives of critically and chronically ill children. Teammates including Gabe Carimi, Chris Conte, Devin Hester, Tim Jennings, Nick Roach, Craig Steltz, Matt Toeaina and Major Wright are expected, along with ex-Bears Anthony Adams, Alex Brown and John Tait.
