    Attended last year’s event and it was awesome! Fantastic cause, many current and a couple former Blackhawk players mingling with the crowd before the concert, tending bar, and being what they’re best at, just being good and very approachable guys. And oh yeah, Lee Brice was fantastic! Can’t wait to see Eli Young this year and support the Keith’s great efforts! We need Foley and Eddie O. there this year!

    I think its great that He is being such a good role model for so man people. Athletic skills are just that temporary, but integrity is forever. Be blessed at your event for giving.
