Welcome to the 2013 Celebrity Weekend presented by FirstLight Federal Credit Union. We are proud to announce that last year we surpassed the previous year’s attendance at the Famous Dave’s & El Paso Sports Commission FREE Football Camp and Health Fair. Over 700 kids from the community enjoyed free food, free posters, NFL grab bags, and autographs!!
Families from throughout El Paso County enjoyed our Health Fair with 16 booths focused on health issues, and FREE Federal Child IDs were given to parents. Another highlight was the presence of 95 children from Lee & Beulah Moor Children’s Home and from El Paso Child Protective Services enjoying a free breakfast sponsored from Golden Corral at Andress High School.
Eagles – Correll Buckhalter, Dallas Cowboy – Tony Curtis, former New York Giant, and Super Bowl Champ – RW McQuarters signed autographs for the kids and encouraged them to follow their dreams!
Tennessee Titans defensive lineman Josh Evans and Burges High School graduate and current Cardinals quarterback John Skelton, along with other NFL and NBA players, signed autographs and took pictures at a private breakfast for the Wounded Troops. We also visited the Children’s Hospital at Providence and the El Paso County Children’s Hospital, and brought smiles to many young patients!
The 2013 Celebrity Weekend will mark our 10th year serving the El Paso Community! Please make plans to join us May 16, 17, and 18.
