Dine with the Pittsburgh Steelers soiree a success
Oh, just another ordinary evening for more than 235 who joined Hines Ward, Larry Foote, Charlie Batch, Ryan Clark and honorary chair L.C. Greenwood for dinner in the East Club Lounge of Heinz Field on Friday for the American Respiratory Alliance’s Dine with the Pittsburgh Steelers soiree.
Fanatics flew in from as far away as Halifax, Seattle, Sioux Falls and even Cleveland and Cincinnati (will they be let back into Ohio after fraternizing with the enemy?) for this sell-out that offered luckies the chance to share supper with a current player or one of the oldies but goodies.
The boys graciously signed autographs until their hands fell off, posing for pictures and talking with each and every fan that stood in line for the meet ‘n’ greet (the longest of which was Ward’s, which seemed to snake its way halfway to Timbuktu).
“That was so awesome!” exclaimed 8-year-old Genesis Harrill after her photo op with No. 86.
Awesome, indeed. All those terrible towels scored more than $73K for the ARA.
