Ex-NFL Stars to Sign for Charity

$50 Off $250 at Steiner Sports with code JETER50

Some past NFL standouts will grab Sharpies during Super Bowl weekend, raising money for their colleagues.

Mike Ditka’s Gridiron Greats program has a big fundraising weekend planned for Tampa next week.

The Gridiron Greats Autograph Extravaganza will feature members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and other retired NFL stars, signing for donations of $20 and up at the Hard Rock Cafe. The event takes place Friday, Jan. 30 from 2 PM to 5 PM.

The goal of the Gridiron Greats fund is to raise money to aid retired players who are in dire need of assistance with medical bills or other problems. Ditka has held similar events during other Super Bowl weeks and at special autograph sessions in Chicago during the summer.

A $20.00 donation to the GGAF for admission ticket is needed for entrance to event. Additional donations are required for each individual player’s signature. Autograph tickets for the signing are being accepted online but the $20 admission must be purchased before autograph tickets are ordered.
