Dalton Foundation Event Monday March 4th


While admittedly we have been lethargic over here at Spitblood the past few months, that doesn't mean we don't take advantage of an opportunity to help out great charities like the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation.  They will be hosting an event in Fort Worth on Monday April 4th and would love as many of you to come as possible and help raise some money.  Here are the event details:




Former TCU and current NFL Quarterback Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals is “steaking out” at Ft. Worth Texas de Brazil on Monday, March 4th located at 101 N. Houston Street. Texas Christian University all-time wins leader will host a Steak-Out at the Brazilian Churrascaria, with proceeds benefiting his charity, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation.

Guests will mingle with Dalton as they enjoy Caipirinha, Brazil’s national cocktail, and dine on passed hors d’oeuvres featuring sizzling meats from the restaurant’s menu including garlic marinated sirloin, chicken breast wrapped in bacon and Brazilian sausage.

TCU memorabilia will be available for purchase, with Dalton on hand to sign autographs. All proceeds from the live and silent auction of this event will go to the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation and their efforts in Ft. Worth.  Their foundation betters the lives of youth by providing seriously ill and physically challenged children throughout Ft. Worth & Greater Cincinnati with daily support and life changing experiences.

The event starts at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 4th.  VIP Tickets are available for $150 per person which includes an NFL signature series football. Guests are not allowed to bring in outside memorabilia, so the football is a significant added value. Tickets are $100 per person for general admission which includes drinks and hors d’oeuvres.
