Football Legends Drew Brees, Michael Strahan, LaDainian Tomlinson and John Elway play on same team for Operation Kids

If there is one thing I like to see, it is celebrities using their name and influence to do good for kids. We have had the opportunity to work with some very talented entertainers and athletes over the years, but what is happening this June is as exciting as anything we have ever been involved in!

Normally, you would not link Drew Brees, Michael Strahan, LaDainian Tomlinson and John Elway on the same team. But on June 6-7-8 in Palm Springs, California, they will join the same team for the benefit of Operation Kids.

The event is the first annual Pro Sports Team Challenge, and we are thrilled to be part of it. The idea is a great one: foursomes from professional hockey, baseball, basketball and football will compete against one another in a golf tournament and each team represents a charity. The winning team will receive $100,000 to donate to its charity. The second place team gets $75,000; the third place team, $50,000; and the fourth place team receives $25,000 for its charity. Operation Kids is the chosen charity for the football team.

You can learn more by going to our website, or you can see team rosters and other information by visiting the event website at Or click here, and we’ll add you to our e-mail list and send you more information on the event.

There is another reason to check out the site. Everyone who logs on can become part of the event. You can become a coach, a donor, even a sweepstakes winner. Please take a look and while there, choose to support Operation Kids and our “team.” Thanks Drew and everyone else for including Operation Kids in this great event.
