Date:1/15/2009

CHICAGO, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Some of Chicago's best-known professional athletes will receive honors at the 21st Annual Comcast SportsNet Sports Awards presented by Navistar to benefit the March of Dimes. The dinner will be held on Monday, February 9th, 5 - 9 p.m. at the Hilton Chicago, 720 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago. The emcee is Chicago radio legend Steve Dahl.

The honorees are top athletes from Chicago's professional teams who have made considerable contributions to their teams as well as the Chicago community. This year's honorees include John Danks (White Sox), Greg Olson (Chicago Bears), Brian McBride (Chicago Fire), Drew Gooden (Bulls), and a Chicago Cubs player TBD. Bobby Hull, former Chicago Blackhawks left wing, is the "Lifetime Achievement Award" recipient. This year's "Farmers Insurance Inspirational Athlete" award winner is Stella McMillan, an 11-year-old congenital amputee, whose perseverance and determination earned her a spot in an outdoor adventure trip in Colorado with the Breckenridge Outdoor Education Center in 2007 where her enthusiasm inspired all. Stella excels at baseball, cycling, swimming, kayaking, golf, yoga, horseback riding, and water skiing.

The 900-plus expected attendees for the event will also be able to participate in a silent auction featuring Chicago Cubs Dream Day tickets including batting practice, a chance to throw the first pitch at Wrigley Field, vacation packages including airfare, autographed jerseys of Lebron James and Wayne Gretsky, tickets for the White Sox Diamond Suite, a golf outing at Medinah Country Club, tickets to sports events, spa and dinner packages, hotel stays and more.

Celebrating its 21st anniversary, the Comcast SportsNet Sports Awards has raised more than $6 million for the March of Dimes over the past two decades. Daniel C. Ustian, ch
