Press Release: THN Gives Back

The event featured a dinner and auction after the golf tournament. Among the items up for bid were signed helmets, footballs and pictures. Easily the most interesting item was a pair of Roy Williams (of the Lions) blue Nike cleats. THN got in on the bidding and even walked away with signed Raleigh McKenzie and Reggie Branch jerseys. More importantly, we helped raise money for a worthwhile cause. The evening also featured entertainment by the Hogettes who sung an “acapella” version of “Hail to the Redskins”, followed by Reggie Branch singing Garth Brooks’ classic “Friends in Low Places.” Reggie spared us by stopping before the chorus. The evening ended with Reggie telling the crowd that he wanted to do it bigger and better next year.
Brian Mitchell offered the most inspiring words of the day when he reminded the crowd that while the mainstream media likes to focus on the mistakes that athletes make (like Sean Taylor), they fail to report all the good that the majority of athletes are doing.
Who were the real winners on this day? The Touchdown for Kids Foundation.
