"You can’t say enough about Gene Upshaw and what he stood for. He understood this in life, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give".   Gene demonstrated this and that’s why I participate in the Gene Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic".

Brian Mitchell, NFL Celebrity, Washington (90-99), Philadelphia (00-02), New York Giants (03)

"Gene was like a father to me and anything I can do to keep his legacy going and his memory around, I will everything I can to be a part of it".

Megan Kasden, Winner of 2014 Super Bowl Raffle

I was overwhelmed with excitement when I got the call that I was the winner of the Super Bowl Raffle!  My husband Gary & I were looking forward to celebrating the completion of his chemo treatments, when we learned we would not be able to attend the Super Bowl because of his comprimised immune system, so we decided to pay it forward.  What a gift it was to meet this brave young man and his family.
