Boys & Girls Clubs to host dinner with NFL Hall of Famer

Boys & Girls Club

The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast (BGCEC) invites football fans to kick off the season at the 6th Annual Stake & Burger Dinner featuring NFL Hall of Famer, Derrick Brooks, on Thursday, August 29th from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Hilton in Sandestin. The annual fundraising event, presented by Publix Charities, will offer fans an opportunity to hear from the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Florida State Seminole. Derrick Brooks began his career at Booker T. Washington High School in Pensacola, Florida, where he led the Wildcats to the state semifinals in 1991. Brooks went on to win ACC Defensive Player of the Year and a national championship with Florida State in 1993. Widely considered one of the best linebackers in NFL history, Brooks was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first round of the 1995 NFL Draft. He remained in Tampa for his 14-year NFL career, which included a Super Bowl title in 2002. Last month, Brooks completed the trifecta of football hall of fame when he was inducted into the National High School Football Hall of Fame. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2016.

All proceeds from this event will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast, which works in the community to promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence through its programs focused on academic success, healthy lifestyles, good character and citizenship. The BGCEC has clubs from Pensacola to DeFuniak Springs, serving 3,200 children in eight clubs across three counties.

General admission tickets are $125 and include a build-your-own-burger bar, a drink ticket, and the opportunity to win and bid on incredible silent auction items. VIP tickets are $175, and include an opportunity to mingle with one of the best linebackers in NFL history during a VIP reception prior to the event.
