This year’s event was hosted by Darren Woodson, a three-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowl selection, he played his entire career for the Dallas Cowboys from 1992-2003. At the football-themed event, guests drafted their own Fantasy Football team to compete in a league of friends and colleagues throughout the NFL season. At the end of the season, the champion of Fantasy Football will win two season tickets for the Dallas Cowboys 2020-2021 season. Winners of each league will receive a football autographed by a celebrity NFL player. Guests were also treated to dinner and drinks, live music, silent and live auctions and fun for a great cause.
Proceeds from this event help support programs for The Warren Center throughout the year including educational programs and services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, developmental services, nutrition, family education and support for children with developmental delays and disabilities.
