The Carolina Panthers and NFL's "Walter Payton Man of The Year Award" recipient and the Founder of The Thomas Davis Defending Dreams Foundation, Mr. Thomas Davis, really goes all out for what he believes in.
Thomas Davis and his Wife Kelly, hosted a charity fundraiser for their 501 C3 Non-profit organization. The event entitled, "The Great Gatsby," raised funds and awareness to assist the foundation in providing positive programs for children. The TDDDF strives to help and encourage students to develop the life and social skills that will help them develop into productive and responsible citizens of tomorrow.
There were many NFL Teammates and supporters in attendance at the TDDDF "The Great Gatsby" event. Carolina Panther's teammate Josh Norman was decked out in a Top Hat, Black and White wing-tipped shoes and a gentleman's cane and looked so good he would put the board game Mr. Monopoly Man on to shame!
Captain Munnerlyn from the NFL's Minnesota Vikings was present to show support for the TDDDF cause and looked very distinguished. Luke Kueckly, Thomas Davis's teammate was also dressed impeccable and had a winner smile to top off his "Great Gatsby look. Many of the women captured the fundraisers theme for the evening by wearing pearl necklaces, shimmy dresses, sequins and feathers to help match and set the scene! Felicia and Herb Gray were present to show their support as well as numerous other patrons.
During his interview Coach Ron Rivera stated that he was extremely proud of Thomas Davis and all that he has done off the field for the community.
The event was held at the Harvey Gantt Center and event tables and black jack tables were available for people to play games on every level! It was a great night of adult fun and it was a great event to bring awareness and funds to a very worthy cause!
