NFL legends come together for worthy cause and to remember Ron Springs and Terry Glenn

NFL legends come together for worthy cause and to remember Ron Springs and Terry Glenn

On May 17th, 2018 some of Dallas’ elite football community will get together to honor two former Cowboys and Ohio State alumni that were taken from us far too soon. Terry Glenn and Ron Springs will be honored at Brotherhood 4 Good at Verona Villa, located at 6591 Dallas Parkway in Frisco, Texas. The dinner will benefit each of their charities foundations, Ron Springs Gift for Life Foundation and Brighter Generation Foundation.

Some of the former Dallas Cowboys stars that have committed include Tony Dorsett, Bruce Thornton, Tony Hill, Everson Walls, Doug Conley (Ohio State Alum), Michael Wiley, Timmy Newsome, and Doug Cosbie. Eddie George, former All-Pro running back and Ohio State Alum is also confirmed for the amazing event.

“Ron was my best friend and he was an incredible family man and friend,” said Tony Dorsett. “I support his foundation, because his life affected so many positively, especially mine, and now through his family and this foundation his legacy is honored.

“It is very important to me because we are able to help kids who truly need it,” Dorsett explained about his role in the foundation. “Not many people know that Ron and I visited Camp Reynal together and we were both struck with the energy and spirit of hope that we saw in the kids and the staff there. Ron’s foundation keeps that hope going in a world that can be so stressful for kids and family.

Also in attendance will be Ron’s daughter, Ayra Springs. When asked about what she would like people to know about how this foundation and event will impact others, she had the following to say:

“The Ron Springs Gift for Life Foundation impacts others because it raises awareness about kidney disease, diabetes, and organ donation. I think it’s very important for everyone in this day in age to be conscious about their health. This foundation promotes organ donation, which is something that isn’t talked about often. We want to make sure people know that they are capable of saving someone’s life by being a organ donor.”

“This event will impact others because it focuses on the brotherhood that my father and his teammates shared through good times and bad. It’s nice to see so many players that are willing to support this event to honor my dad and Terry Glenn’s legacy. Their willingness to help speaks to the level of respect they had for my father. Everson Walls’ phenomenal gesture of donating his kidney to my father is one of the greatest sports stories I’ve ever witnessed. This act proved that there is a true brotherhood amongst teammates. This event is important because we will continue to raise funds to support the foundation’s beneficiary, Camp Reynal. This camp allows children that need medical care to have a normal Summer camp experience with the help of on site medical care and dialysis. The Brotherhood 4 Good event will impact the community positively by shining light on health related issues and children in need. We are most excited about being able to give back to children that need it most.”

The Brotherhood 4 Good  is going to be an amazing experience for the avid football fans out there. Dinner, cocktails and an amazing silent auction of sports themed memorabilia. Sponsors will have an opportunity to dine with “A Star” as each sponsored table at the affair will feature a football player host.

In addition to the dinner, there will be a private sponsor reception, which will include current Dallas Cowboys players, Ohio State Buckeyes, former Cowboys’ legends, and other NFL stars.
