aLOFT hosts The Vince Young Foundation Charity Event – Vince Makes a Killer Brisket
Last Tuesday the Philadelphia Airport aLOFT hotel hosted Vince Young’s first charity event in Philadelphia for his foundation, The Vince Young Foundation. The Vince Young Foundation is committed to providing the support students need to be successful and productive leaders.For $25 fans got to meet several sports celebrities including Michael Vick, Vince Young, LeSean McCoy, and Brent Celek, win prizes, meet Eagle’s Swoop, enjoy live music by No Question and enjoy delicious food prepared by Executive Chef Tim Jones, including Vince Young’s own BBQ. Did you know the new Philadelphia Eagles back up quarterback, Vince Young has his own line of smoked sausage, brisket, and ribs. You can check out his site, Vince Young Meats. I tried his Bawling Brisket and it was the best. Currently Vince has a restaurant in his home state of Texas, but I’d like to see one open up in Philly. Delicious!! Maybe Percy’s BBQ could carry it? Above Vince Young is interviewed by Live 97.5 The Fanatic on The Mike Missanelli Show (2pm – 6pm).The event came about because of the long friendship of Nina Timani Director of Sales and Marketing/Six Sigma Greenbelt/Sheraton Hotels and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick. (Our thoughts are with the Vick family. Hoping for a speedy recover for Mike.)
Another fan of Mike Vick’s was staying at the hotel, and that was Cuba Gooding Sr. He was in town with his group The Main Ingredient, (you know the song “Everybody Plays The Fool” right, that’s them!) When Cuba approached Vick he said, “When my son was in Jerry McGuire and he said ‘Show Me The Money’, he was talking about you Michael Vick!!”
6ABC’s Sports Anchor Jamie Apody and Frank Burton.
Moms Sue O’Donnell and Eileen Mastrogiovanna are pinch hitters for their sons who they just moved into Drexel University for the semester and said they would go to the aLOFT event and get graphs from their favorite quarterback Mike Vick.
Nina Timani holds up the newly issued Mike Vick plus doll, which is NFL approved states Vick after he inspected it, cause if it’s not NFL approved he’s not signing it. We sometimes forget that the NFL is a business and contracts rule. Vick is studying the doll intensely.
Stating that it looked pretty good, almost like looking in a mirror, not.
Brent Celek was in the house signing for fans too. Keleigh Nelligan was excited to meet him.
