HIGHLAND | Lifelong Chicago Bears fan Bob Haskell, of Highland, had his allegiance sorely tested last month, when his Bears lost a must-win thriller in the NDL regular-season finale to the reival Green Bay Packers.

"I had a wager with a co-worker, Joe Philipps, also of Highland and a lifelong Packers fan, that the loser shall wear a dress to a local restaurant pub that we both frequent," Haskell explained.

"I would not think of trying to get out of my debt, as I certainly would not have let him out if the Bears had won, so I thought about how I could make it into something positive," Haskell added. "I was at Rodney’s Sports Bar in Highland in a dress and I collected (donations) for breast cancer awareness and research.

"I had a tremendous amount of support from co-workers and friends and family members. I also created a Facebook event for it which was very well received," Haskell added.

After all the long-distance pledges were added to the donations at the bar, Haskell had collected $306. "Every cent that I raised will be donated to the Susan G. Komen For the Cure," he said.
