If you go to Jarvis Green’s website, you will find three words that describe the two-time Super Bowl champion and current Houston Texan: “Philanthropist, Athlete, Entrepreneur.” While Green has certainly had his fair share of success on the gridiron, it may not be a coincidence that the first word is “Philanthropist.” I constantly receive emails from his public relations manager regarding Green’s events.
Green’s upcoming event is a Wine Tasting Gala in Baton Rogue, Louisiana. It will be held on Friday, May 27, 2011 from 7-11 p.m. at the Cook Hotel/Lod Cook Alumni Center, and will feature a live band (the Rat Pack Band featuring Liza Minnelli), gourmet dining, fine wines, a raffle, and a silent auction. Other entertainment includes comedian D’lai and performances by X-tremetalent caricature, Elvis Statue and Jester Juggler. The event will benefit disadvantaged, victimized single mothers in Baton Rogue and neighboring areas.
Expected attendees include: Corey Webster, Bradie James, Kyle Williams, Randall Gay, Alan Faneca, Kevin Faulk, Glenn Dorsey, Tyson Jackson, former All-Pro RB Jamal Anderson, Brandon Harris, Kalenna of Diddy Dirty Money, R&B songstress Stefani Vera and Jason Hewitt, Film Producer.
