ST. CHARLES, IL.:  After a successful inaugural event in 2023, Onesti Entertainment has announced plans to host the Second Annual “Mongo Bowl” fundraisers at both the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles and the Des Plaines Theatre on Super Bowl Sunday, February 11, 2024.  All proceeds from raffles and donations at the free admission event will be used for Steve McMichael’s 24-hour nurse care expenses.  Both events will be hosted by Ron Onesti and Misty McMichael, Steve’s wife.

“2023 was such a huge success, I am honored to announce Misty McMichael and I have decided to host the 2nd Annual “Mongo Bowl”.  This Super Bowl experience will be incredible as our concert-quality sound systems and video walls will be utilized to show the game, while at the same time helping someone who gave us football fans so much joy.  An NFC or AFC Champion? It doesn’t matter, as long as Steve wins,” said Ron Onesti, CEO of Onesti Entertainment.

The legendary Chicago Bears player and NFL Super Bowl Champion was diagnosed with ALS in 2021.  With mounting health care debt, this will be a chance for fans to show their love and appreciation to Steve.  These events will make for a fun-filled day with tailgate parties, food and drink specials, raffles, pinball and gaming tournaments, a game viewing party, and more!  The day will begin at 11 am with a 1pm showing of the 1985 Chicago Bears Super Bowl winning game.

Direct donations can also be made online at, through Oshows Cares, the charitable arm of Onesti Entertainment, with proceeds going directly to the McMichael family.

The Arcada Theatre is located at 105 E. Main Street in St. Charles, IL.  The Des Plaines Theatre is located at 1476 Miner Street, Des Plaines, IL. More information, including a donation link, can be found at or by phone at 630-962-7000.
