Tonight there was quite the ruckus at Manny’s Steakhouse. Chad Greenway and some of his Vikings teammates were pouring wine, serving apps and signing autographs for some die hard fans.
Chad Greenway has a charity called Lead the Way Foundation, which provides support and resources to seriously ill and physically challenged children in Minnesota. Tonight was a silent and live auction to benefit the cause. Karen Sorbo did an amazing job, as always, energizing the crowd and getting their bids going. And the guests’ generosity was overwhelming, especially right off the bat when Chad’s donation that night was matched immediately.
Though there were some great items to bid on, the real treat was being able to flag over your favorite Vikings player and have them serve you a brownie while they chatted game strategies. I’ve never seen so many grown people with gleams of absolute joy in their eyes. What made it even better? The players were down to earth, generous and had a good time. Here are a couple pictures from the event, enjoy!
