As the Super Bowl Week is winding down , we still have a few more events that have been donated for our warriors on this Super Bowl Saturday – including the Super Bowl Breakfast, WWAFT Flag Football game and 2 new events for 2016 – the Leather and Laces Party and the Taste of the NFL .
Paralyzed Veteran Army Sgt Ken Pollock and Marine Ed Schrantz were our VIP Guests at Taste of the NFL , while Army Sgt Michael Smith and 18 year Active Duty Marine Blake Cole were VIP Guests at the Leather and Laces Party.
A great time, good food , and fun was had by all 4 of these heroes, and both had opportunity to meet some celebrities including Miss America at Taste of the NFL And Shaq at Leather and Laces.
Unfortunately I had to fly out this afternoon and I missed these 2 exciting events , as well as a very inspirational afternoon . My dad attended the Wounded Warrior Flag Football in which our Leather and Laces guest , arm Amputee Michael Smith received MVP Award for catching 3 touchdown passes!
Our ESPN party guests Davey and Jeremy also played in this game featuring Wounded Vets vs 49ers alumni . In fact about 15 of their players have been among our 1700 VIP guests during our first 3 years of existence including Team Captain BJ Ganem who was our 3rd Guest Ever at Packers game in 2012.
In closing out our week full of incredible events , honoring some very inspirational heroes – we now turn our attention to the Super Bowl itself . We look forward to meeting our Super Bowl Warrior Army Sgt Joel Tavera and his father Jose , who also served 25 years for our country . They will be attending the game tomorrow, along with MSgt Cedric King who has been our guest most of the week .
