With over 700 kids from the community attending the FREE Football Camp and Health Fair, we surpassed the previous year’s attendance. The kids enjoyed free food, free posters, NFL grab bags, and autographs!!
The weekend kicked off with a visit to El Paso County Children’s Hospital. The celebrity visit brought smiles to many young patients! There were free photo ops and autographs at our annual FREE open-to-the-public “Meet & Greet” at N3L Optics in Cielo Vista Mall.
Thanks to FirstLight Federal Credit Union and Buffalo Wild Wings at Freedom Crossing, the mouth-burning, wing-eating contest between celebrity guests and wounded troops from FortBliss was a HUGE success.
Events at the FREE Ray Mickens Celebrity Weekend Football Camp and Health Fair included autograph sessions with Dallas Cowboy & Super Bowl Champ, Russell Maryland, Kansas City Chief, Cyrus Gray, and Dallas Cowboys, Keith Davis and Dexter Coakley, among other celebrity guests. The celebrities encouraged the kids to follow their dreams.
There were over 20 booths with community health agencies distributing information and simple health screenings to kids and parents.
At AndressHigh School there were 95 children from both Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home and El Paso Child Protective Services enjoying a free breakfast sponsored by Golden Corral.
The 2014 Celebrity Weekend will mark our 10th year serving the El Paso Community! Please make plans to join us May 15, 16, and 17.
