Join Kevin-John and former Pittsburgh Steelers players as they watch the 2008 Steelers take on the Cleveland Browns on national television for this Hollywood style celebrity fund raiser for the Willie Williams Show Them We Care Foundation for children’s education. KJ comments: “This will not be a “the celebrities are over there, and everyone else is over here” event. You will enjoy every sports fan’s dream come true as you mingle with these world class athletes, as they sign autographs, take photos and cheer on the Black and Gold with you!” Ever since Kevin-John began creating artwork for world class athletes, he dreamt of bringing a truly top shelf celebrity event to his hometown. His friendships with some of the Steeler all-time greats will now make this a reality and it all benefits a tremendous cause, the Show Them We Care Foundation (STWC). Established in 2002, STWC is a non-profit organization founded by former Seattle Seahawk and Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh Steeler Willie Williams and wife Melissa Williams. The foundation was created to be a network for progress in education and life skills. Its primary mission is to support and develop programs that create innovative solutions to educating adults and children in our communities. Changing communities from the inside out is the resounding declaration that STWC pledges. http://stwcfoundation.org/golf/default.asp
