Sponsored by Crown Royal Black, this private event features a three-course dinner, open bar, dancing on beautiful Mystic Blue Cruise Ship on Navy Pier. Since learning he had type 1 diabetes after his second season in the NFL, Cutler has worked to help inspire children with diabetes to achieve their goals – and let them see that diabetes doesn’t have to stop them from being who they want to be. Partnered with Eli Lily, Jay Cutler and the American Diabetes Association team up to fund diabetes camp scholarships through “Touchdowns for Diabetes.” For every touchdown pass Cutler thew during the 2009 season, Lilly set a child to diabetes camp by donating $1,000 to the ADA’s “Camp Scholarship” fund. For every completed pass, they donated $100.
