Warriors Unite: Mike Ditka & the Gridiron Greats Form Partnership to Assist Retired NFL Players & U.S. Military Special Operations Personnel
Date:11/12/2008

se exciting events. Highlights of the week will include the Dinner Of Champions hosted by Bob Costas featuring NFL legends spanning the generations at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, DA Coaches Golf Classic, Gridiron Greats Autograph Extravaganza, and the Celebrity Sporting Clay event, which will feature a real world "shoot house" event and demo with Special Ops experts. A complete schedule of events and participate list is available at http://www.gridirongreats.org

In addition, a donation drive and massive online auction featuring one-of-a-kind, personal artifacts from hundreds of NFL greats will run from Jan. 27 through Feb. 5.

"Both the special operations community and the Gridiron Greats share a bond of brotherhood like no other," said Ditka, board member of the GGAF. "It is with this strong sense of spirit that retired professional football players and special operations vow to take care of their own and have formed this very special relationship".

"Even in these troubled times and in spite of many of the Gridiron Greats having their own dire needs, these players are reaching out to support their own but also the SOWF. We are confident that a significant amount of funds and awareness will be raised for both organizations," said Jennifer Smith, executive director, Gridiron Greats.

"The actions of the Gridiron Greats speaks volumes about their character -- these football players are heroes to the children of our fallen warriors by ensuring they receive the college education their parents would have wanted for them," said Carney, Jr. "We hope that through awareness generated through the Gridiron Greats and the Special Operations Warrior Foundation that they will no longer be forgotten."

All of the aforementioned events are open to the public and tickets are on sale and an online donation drive is underway for now at
