Eagles Players Get Behind the Bar For Gary Papa Run
Early this spring I told you about best friends, and former teammates Todd Herremans wife Elizabeth and Brent Celek‘s wife Celeste were all expecting babies and their due dates were within weeks of each other. Well the babies have all been born, and they’re cute little girls. Mommy and babies are looking forward to playing in the sandbox real soon along with Heather Mitts and AJ Feeley‘s daughter born a month earlier. All three couples were at Dancing for the Future Stars for IMS schools. Fast forward to yesterday where the bffs were doing good raising money for prostate cancer awareness and the Gary Papa Run coming up June 19 at the Art Museum.
A celebrity bartending event was held at Brent Celek’s Prime Stache to raise funds for the upcoming Gary Papa Run. Philadelphia Eagles players Connor Barwin, Lane Johnson, Todd Herremans and Jason Kelce played bartenders for a day to whip up cocktails for patrons from 5pm to 7pm with proceeds going to support the Foundation for Breast and Prostate Health’s prostate cancer initiatives in the Philadelphia area. (BTW Brent’s new eater BOP, 220 S. Broad St., OPENS TODAY)
Lots of people came out to support the boys and their quest to raise funds.
50% of restaurant proceeds from the evening will be donated, along with the bartenders tips. A $10 donation at the door is suggested.

“The organizers stress to me that Prostate Cancer can and should be caught early. It’s important to get a painless examination to”–I think you might have left off the end of this sentence. Would be great if you can say “It’s important for all men after 40 to get screened and to discuss their prostate health with their healthcare providers. Early detection saves lives.”
I ran into Justin Pizzi and friend, both from Saxbys on my way out to the CCD 25th Anniversary Party, which I’ll write up next week. Have a great weekend!!
