Earlier this week, I told you about Tommie Harris’ event to Benefit Prevent Child Abuse America and the Tommie Harris Foundation that took place on Friday night. The event team was kind enough to let me come hang out and check out the scene.
Tommie Harris was joined by teammates Chris Harris, Major Wright, Devin Hester, Earl Bennett, Johnny Knox and Anthony Adams for a star-studded event. Guests were treated to a silent auction, dinner and then bid for a player of their choice to bowl with them. I arrived as the bidding was underway and it was pretty exciting. Bidding reached into the thousands of dollars as the excited and generous supporters raised big bucks for a great cause.
If you think the players are competitive on the field, that’s just the half of it. These dudes were fiercely competitive on the lanes too. I was really impressed with how generous the players were with their time and how loose they were just over a day away from the kickoff of the season. Check out some sights from the great event:
