Former NFL Charity for Detroit’s Youth Expanded (+ a little Kid Rock!)

30 Nov


The Detroit Lions Retired Players Charity is now MPAC (Michigan Pro Athletes Charity). MPAC was created to encompass a broader spectrum of sports and to unite pro athletes (present and past), charitable organizations, and concerned members of the community. MPAC’s mission is to develop and collaborate with programs/organizations that support youth, health, sports, education, and community.

MPAC is hosting a holiday wine tasting fundraiser, The Taste: A Wine Tasting Event with MPAC, on November 24, 2010 from 7 p.m. – 1 a.m. at Via Nove (Ferndale, MI), tickets are $20. Included in the ticket price supporters will receive Moscato, hors d’ oeuvres, 3 red wines and 3 white wines to taste from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. with live entertainment and door prizes throughout the event. This event is supported by the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA – Detroit Chapter).

Kid Rock performing for the charity half-time Show for United Way on Thanksgiving

On another Detroit note, Kid Rock took the stage for the 2010 United Way Thanksgiving Halftime Show during the first game of the NFL’s tripleheader when the Detroit Lions hosted the New England Patriots Thursday, November 25 on CBS.  This special halftime event will feature a live performance of Kid Rock’s new song and album title track Born Free released on the Atlantic Records label. Kid Rock has a history of giving back to the community, which includes time spent visiting and performing for troops overseas. More than 1,000 people will participate in the halftime show, including members of the National Guard and their families.
