Chicago's own Jenny McCarthy on Thursday will host a benefit for Generation Rescue, the controversial-to-some autism advocacy organization the model, actress and activist fronts.

The event, the fifth annual "Rescue Our Angels" party, will be hosted by Rockit Bar & Grill, 22 W. Hubbard, from 6:30-10 p.m. Thursday on the city's Near North Side. It will feature cocktails, dinner and desserts and a silent auction featuring prizes including a three-day Lollapalooza VIP pass, 2013 Grammy tickets and a "chef for a day" package with Graham Elliott.

McCarthy is currently dating Chicago Bear Brian Urlacher -- though there is no word whether the linebacker will join her at the Thursday event. The two have previously been spotted out and about the town in Chicago, including dinner last month at the Bill and Giuliana Rancic-owned RPM, followed by dancing at Paris Club's Studio Paris lounge.

Tickets to the fundraiser -- which start at $75 -- are available here.
