Christmas and sausage biscuits….not what the attendees of this month’s Charlotte Touchdown Club Luncheon expected as a topic of conversation! But it was what Day Dream Kid Jared had on his mind as he took the stage to represent Dream On 3 and the crowd loved it. Really, who doesn’t like Christmas and sausage biscuits? Jared was one of four Day Dream recipients selected to attend the July luncheon and speaker series featuring NFL Hall-of-Famer and former Carolina Panther, Kevin Greene.
Day Dreamers, Sam, Joshua, Gerard, and Jared had a private meet and greet with Greene where they taught him the special Dream On 3 huddle. They spend some time getting autographs and discussing their favorite Carolina Panthers players. Greene was wonderful with all the kids and really made it a special experience.
After Jared’s onstage appearance, more than 600 attendees heard from Greene as shared his habits of success and what it was like as one of the most feared linebackers in the NFL. We asked Day Dream Kid Gerald what the highlight of his experience was and he replied, “hearing Kevin Greene speak about his 15 years of playing football and practicing every day and all of the work that he put in to get into the Hall of Fame.” Gerald and others were truly inspired by Greene’s determination and hard work!
The kids enjoyed a delicious lunch and were treated like celebrities for the day! The luncheon always features a silent auction full of sports memorabilia, just one more thing to add to the fun experience. Special thanks to Kevin Greene and the Charlotte Touchdown Club for joining us in the huddle and giving our Dream Kids a great day!
