Locker Room Chat 2017
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors, panel, NFL alumni, friends and volunteers for making the 2017 Locker Room Chat our best one yet! We raised over $70,000 for Kids & Pros to bring free #youthfootball camps and clinics to areas in need in 2018.
NFL Greats, Pittsburgh Steelers’ Jerome “The Bus” Bettis , Levon Kirkland and Greg Lloyd and emcee Dave Archer kept our guests laughing with their engaging stories and fun comments, and inside information! We were honored to have such an amazing group of NFL alumni to add fun commentary and mingle with attendees, as well!
The Locker Room Chat, at Brookfield Country Club, featured delicious food, drinks, access to live and silent auctions, and the opportunity to mix and mingle with former football legends (current list below), as well as experience the Locker Room Chat panel / roast event as well.
