“This event was a testament to the power of friendship, hard work, networking and the ability to use our collective efforts to BE GREAT and help those in need,” Jennings said. “Nicole and I are very grateful to all our friends and associates and the business community that came from around the country to join us for the event, and we are looking forward to putting the monies raised to good use assisting young people to follow their goals and help improve the world we live in, both in Michigan and Wisconsin and around the world.”
Among those in attendance at the event were NFL greats Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals, Ndamukong Suh of the Detroit Lions, Packers teammates Donald Driver and Jeff Saturday, and former All-Pro Tommie Harris.
The announcement was the latest in a week which saw Jennings take to the road in the name of community service and awareness. From Tuesday-Thursday, Jennings participated in the United Way Youth Empowerment Summit with other NFL players, identifying opportunities to improve the academic success of American students and creating engagement opportunities for TEAM NFL members and their supporters to recruit readers, tutors and mentors. The Summit concluded with a day of service and a visit to Capitol Hill on Thursday to speak with representatives about a stronger community engagement. He then traveled to New York to attend and support the “Turn Two Foundation” dinner, which is run by New York Yankees star and fellow Kalamazoo native Derek Jeter.
