“This event is on its way to being one of the most star-studded events, athletes-wise, with many different sports being represented to support one cause,” said Rod Ricciardi, Managing Director of Find A Dream. “We are bringing everyone together for this cause to develop some gyms and facilities that will help the children. Sports are all about discipline and learning, and that is what we try to instill upon these children to help them evolve. To have this many people and the Hard Rock Casino believe in our cause is quite an accomplishment, and we are very grateful for all of the tremendous support we have already received for the weekend.”
Among the scheduled guests for the Find A Dream All-Star Golf Event include Basketball Hall of Famer Julius Erving, along with current and former National Football League stars Lawrence Taylor, Brian Kelly, Clinton Portis, Duce Staley, LeSean McCoy, Darren Sproles, Antonio Pierce, Plaxico Burress, Tim Tebow, Laveranues Coles, Fred Taylor, Jevon Kearse, Rudi Johnson, Vernon Carey, Channing Crowder, Samari Rolle and Lito Sheppard. UFC light heavyweight Rashad Evans is also slated to appear, along with a healthy list of former world champion boxers and contenders in Ray Mercer, Michael Moorer, Bobby Czyz, Gerry Cooney, James Smith, Don Steele and Sal Cenicola.
“Find A Dream is a great organization that gives less fortunate kids the confidence to believe in themselves,”
Additional events are planned for the weekend gala being conducted by Find A Dream, including youth clinics and other fundraising activities. All proceeds raised throughout the weekend will benefit various programs that are operated by the non-profit foundation. Targeting inner-city youths, their programming incudes boxing, football, martial arts, soccer and other sports, with distinguished athletes serving as volunteers at many of their functions.
