Bleacher ReportSenior Analyst IApril 18, 2008
NE Patriots Draft: Could you tell our readers a little bit about your draft day Fundraiser?
Vince: My draft day fundraiser was started when I was drafted. it was a way for me to open up the experience to the fans and the public. It was a great event. I used that event as a way to help other people avoid going what I went through when I lost my father to diabetes. So all of the funds raised went to the Diabetes research institute. Since then I have been doing the event every year. This will be my fifth year and what I hope to be our best year. Last year we raised over $40,000.00 for the cause and we hope to pass that this year. You can get information and buy tickets at http://www.pinzbowl.com/ and for any one who wants to donate they can email me at fans@vincewilfork75.com for more information.
