ST. CHARLES, MISSOURI (October 5, 2012) –Ever wondered what your favorite NFL player was thinking when he made a headline play? Or, wished you could give game
changing advice to a rookie? Now is your chance to meet face-to-face with current and former gridiron giants at the monthly Monday Night Football Fundraiser, presented by the National Football Players Association (NFLPA) Former Players St. Louis Chapter.
“Volunteerism and philanthropy are two pillars of NFLPA Former Players St. Louis’ charitable engagement program,” explained Bernard Whittington, chapter president and former Indianapolis Colt. “We will not ‘take a
knee’ to the needs of our community and area families.”
The NFLPA is an advocacy organization for players. Proceeds from the family-friendly monthly event will benefit area youth whom the organization supports by promoting economic empowerment and health
awareness through academia, athletics and the arts.
Monday Night Football by NFLPA at Ameristar Casino’s Bottleneck Blues Bar starts at 7p.m. on October 15. Admission is $20 per person and includes: stadium
food buffet, autographs, free giveaways, a meet and greet with current and former players, and an auction of an authentic helmet autographed by Hall of
Famers: Mean Joe Green, Ronnie Lott, Floyd Little, Jack Youngblood, Ahmad Bradshaw, Jay Feely, and Deacon Jones.
This month’s special feature is the National Anthem sung by former St. Louis Cardinal Jerry Holloway.
