Indianapolis (April 29, 2010) – Most Indianapolis Colts fans know Defensive Back Bob Sanders for delivering tough tackles on the football field. But on Monday, May 17, 2010, with the help of some celebrity friends, Sanders and some of his reigning AFC Champion teammates will be serving 200 Morton’s steak dinners to guests attending the Bob Sanders and Friends Celebrity Server.
This exclusive fundraising event will take place at Morton’s The Steakhouse in Indianapolis on Monday, May 17, 2010, beginning at 6 p.m. The evening will feature four courses of Morton’s signature cuisine, fine wine and an exciting auction — all in the name of a good cause. Proceeds will benefit the Bob Sanders Chasing Dreams Foundation. ESPN 1070 The Fan’s Dan Dakich will serve as emcee for the evening.
“Establishing the Chasing Dreams Foundation has been a dream of mine for many years,” said Sanders. “Through this event, we hope to raise awareness and support to keep the dreams of the students we serve a reality. With the help of the community, Bob Sanders and Friends Celebrity Server, will not only be a fun evening for those in attendance, but also an important opportunity to impact young lives right here in Indianapolis.”
Bob Sanders Chasing Dreams Foundation strives to enhance educational opportunities for students in grades 8-12 through academic support, cultural enrichment activities and college readiness programming, enabling them to pursue their dreams of a college education.
“Morton’s is thrilled to partner with Bob, who is not only a high profile Colts player, but who is so committed to making a positive impact for the kids in this community,” said Roger Drake, senior vice president, marketing and communications for Morton’s The Steakhouse. “This is an extraordinary opportunity for our guests to be served an exceptional dinner by Bob and his friends, including many of the AFC Champion Indianapolis Colts top players, all for a great cause.”
