“For the past 12 years I have hosted an annual charity and golf event in my hometown of Miami, Florida. While it has been a very successful event allowing us to assist local Miami youth and senior based charities, I have not forgotten the hard working people and devoted Raider fans of the city where I experienced the thrill of 3 Super Bowl Championships.
Each year as our family gathers in Oakland for an annual family weekend together, we have talked about starting an annual bowling tournament to help benefit local causes in the Oakland area. We began our charity event - now called the FOOTBOWL - 2 years ago and with our initial success, we agreed to continue to kick off the opening weekend and Raider season with a charity-based event. I invite corporations, families, and people who what to come out to have a great time while raising funding for three great programs to sign up and join our efforts” it is a chance to rub elbows with Raider Legends and enjoy a family Saturday afternoon as well.” said Hall of Famer, and host Ted Hendricks.
