Andy Dalton Proving Life is More Than Football

RIVERCITYSPORTS.COM - May 14, 2014 - A lot has been written about Andy Dalton the quarterback – from indisputable, to arguable, to unacceptable. But as Dalton is showing everyone, there is more to life than football. With contract negotiations and rumors swirling around him, Dalton continues to go about his everyday life – both on and off the field.

Often times as a society, we are force-fed “proof” that athletes, politicians and entertainers are good people doing the right things. Staged photo ops are used to change the public perception of public figures in hopes of selling their brand or ideal. Too often it is a publicity stunt void of any sincerity or good will.

Throughout his four years in Cincinnati, Andy Dalton has been anything but the prototypical athlete. His passion on the field matched only by his passion for helping others off the field. That passion has never been more evident than from his efforts with his wife through their Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation

With the goal of providing seriously ill and physically challenged children throughout Greater Cincinnati with daily support and life changing experiences, the Daltons’ foundation is leaving a greater impact on the Queen City than any potential hall of fame career on the field could dream of doing.

Holding events such as Holiday Hearts, King For a Day and Steak Out, Andy and Jordan Dalton are helping to provide memories that last a lifetime. And how often have you seen Andy posing for a perfectly timed photo op for ESPN? Or how about reminding everyone how often he and Jordan give back to their community?

You don’t – he quietly, and humbly, continues to make a a difference. And it is that sincerity and servant’s heart that makes Dalton such a valuable asset to the Cincinnati Bengals and, more importantly, to the city of Cincinnati.

Andy and Jordan are once again preparing for a special opportunity to help their foundation make a change in the lives of local children. On June 2, they will be hosting the third annual Celebrity Waiter Night benefiting Greater Cincinnati families in need. Hosted at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza, the event will feature an award winning cuisine from Chef Todd Kelly of Orchids at Palm Court, fine wine and exciting auctions – all for an undeniably great cause.

“We are so excited to be hosting our third annual Celebrity Waiter Night at Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza,” said Andy Dalton, quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals. “Last year we raised $120,000 and were able to, once again, witness the generous support of our community. This is a great way to get the public involved with the foundation and help us to make a huge impact in the Cincinnati area.”

We support Andy in his endeavors on the gridiron, maybe it is time for us to support him in an endeavor that will have a lasting impact – making a difference within the city we love.
