NFL Quarterback to Host Fundraiser for Cook Children’s Medical Center; Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation dinner, auction to fund entertainment for pediatric patients
Friday, February 27, 2015

FORT WORTH, TEXAS (Feb. 25, 2015) – The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation, which provides ill and physically challenged children and their families with resources, support and life-changing experiences, announces ticket sales for its annual charity dinner and auction to benefit children recovering from illness or receiving treatment at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth.

Current Cincinnati Bengals Quarterback and Former Texas Christian University standout Andy Dalton and his wife, Jordan, will host the second Fiesta & Goal benefit dinner for the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation on Wednesday, April 1, at Joe T. Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant in Fort Worth. The evening will include both silent and live auctions with donations going toward the expansion of Foundation programming throughout Fort Worth children’s hospitals.

“Both Jordan and I have always felt tremendous support in Texas—especially in Fort Worth—and we’re lucky to have the opportunity to give back to deserving kids and their families in our home state through our Foundation,” Dalton said. “Fiesta & Goal is a chance to kick back with my fans while also supporting Cook Children’s and the amazing care they provide to North Texas children. It really is a win-win.”

The money raised at the event will support programs such as Andy’s Hub presented by Albertson’s at Cook Children’s Medical Center and the Pass It On Fund in Fort Worth. The Hub is a locker filled with iPads, notebook computers, DVD players, gaming systems and other items intended to help pass time during treatment or recovery. The Pass It On Fund supports patients by providing grants that help pay medical bills and assist with other needs of the families.

“If we can make a hospital visit a little less scary for a child, or if we can help a teenager pass some time while receiving treatment, it’s absolutely worth it. Jordan and I are grateful for the people in North Texas who support this important cause,” Dalton added.

In 2014, the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation raised nearly $150,000 at their inaugural Fiesta & Goal event to help support programming in the Fort Worth area. Before Fiesta & Goal 2015, Andy and Jordan Dalton will tour The Hub at Cook Children’s Medical Center, make additional contributions from last year’s event, and visit with the children and their families.
