EVENING WITH VON MILLER AT TEXAS DE BRAZIL RAISES ALMOST $15,000 FOR CHARITY
Thursday, June 26, 2014
(Denver, CO)— Broncos’ All-Pro Linebacker, Von Miller hosted his second annual Evening with Von Miller at Texas de Brazil last week. The sold-out event brought 80 guests into the Brazilian Churrascaria for an intimate evening to discuss, Von’s Vision.
During the two hour cocktail hour, guests heard Miller speak about the Foundation’s accomplishments over the last year, including Von’s Vision Day where Miller tested, fitted and delivered 104 children prescription lenses. Over sizzling hors d’oeuvres from the Texas de Brazil menu, guests munched, bid on silent auction items, and took a lot of selfies with the All-Pro Linebacker.
Between ticket sales and silent auction items, the Foundation raised $14,000 that night.
“I know what its like to not be able to see,” said Miller, who owns about 32 pairs of glasses. “These kids need to see to be able to learn and succeed in the classroom. If I can help get them that, or show them glasses are cool to wear, that’s what I’m trying to do.”
In addition to Von’s Vision Day, Miller and his Executive Board are working to identify additional programs to accomplish that mission. The next event on the calendar is Celebrity Waiter Night, scheduled for this fall.
