This coming Monday, May 17, 2010, is the date set for a fund-raising event featuring the Indianapolis Colts safety, Bob Sanders. He and his friends, all Indianapolis sports celebrities, will meet in the kitchen at Morton’s Steakhouse, an elegant Indianapolis restaurant, swapping their blue and whites for aprons and dinner plates.
It’s all part of Bob Sanders‘ own dream, which he has appropriately named the “Chasing Dreams Foundation.” Sanders’ dream team is hooking up with Morton’s The Steakhouse Restaurant, an upscale, community-conscious steak house in downtown Indianapolis. Morton’s has its own ongoing programs to aid and enhance Indianapolis culture and society, one of which is called “Celebrity Servers.” Put the two programs together and you have a combination like cake and ice cream.
The special event includes a reception, four fabulous courses, wine and a fun and easy silent auction to benefit the Bob Sanders Chasing Dreams Foundation. The Indianapolis charity organization focuses on students from grades eight through twelve, giving them academic support and generally enriching their lives.
One of the main goals of the foundation is to inspire kids to go after their dreams for higher education. Founder Bob Sanders, a star athlete whose dreams have definitely come true, wants kids to know that they can do it too. Sanders’ own life is a study in chasing impossible dreams, and catching them. At only 5’8″, weighing in at 206 pounds, he nevertheless is a key player in the Indianapolis Colts defense, proof that when all is said and done, it’s more head and heart than height.
Sanders is also a two-time Pro Bowler and two-time All Pro. Well-known for his innate leadership abilities, Bob Sanders was dubbed “The Eraser” by former coach Tony Dungy, a nod to his natural affinity for erasing the mistakes of other teammates. Sanders quickly became a favorite among sports-loving Hoosiers all over Indiana.
Join the winners, present and future, for a memorable evening at Morton’s The Steakhouse Restaurant in downtown Indianapolis next Monday. Have a sumptuous feast, meet the stars, get inspired and pass it on.
