Lance Briggs Raises Money For Youth Football Programs At Holiday Party In Chicago (PHOTOS)

Bears linebacker Lance Briggs hosted a holiday party Monday night to help raise funds for his football camps around the nation.

Briggs raised around $15,000 at the Lincoln Square holiday party, where he hung out with about 200 supporters and Bears fans wanting to eat and drink for a good cause.

All proceeds went to Briggs' various football camps and his non-profit Briggs4Kidz. The organization helps the emotional and financial struggle of poverty-stricken youth.
