Jackson to Hold Celebrity Weekend in Sharon, Pa., Friday and Saturday
INDIANAPOLIS - Marlin Jackson has emerged in recent seasons as one of the NFL's top young cornerbacks and a key to the Colts' defense.
This weekend, he has another task.
His task is to serve up dreams.
Jackson, a first-round selection by the Colts in the 2005 NFL Draft, will host a celebrity weekend in his hometown of Sharon, Pa. on Friday and Saturday. The weekend will include the Serving Up Dreams Celebrity Server Dinner and Auction, a free football clinic and a 7-on-7 flag football tournament for area youth.
On Friday, Jackson has invited teammates and friends to help raise money for the Marlin Jackson Fight for Life Foundation.
The Serving Up Dreams Celebrity Server Dinner and Auction will begin Friday at 7 p.m. at the Avalon Golf & Country Club at Buhl Park in Sharon. Jackson and teammates have volunteered their services to work as "celebrity waiters."
On Saturday, Jackson will host a free football clinic from 8:30 a.m. to noon for youth between the ages of 8-13. A 7-on-7 flag football tournament for youth between the ages 14-18 will follow the clinic from 1 p.m. to 7 PM.
Both will be held at the Sharon High School football fields. Space is limited and registration is available at www.marlinjackson.org. For more information on the Marlin Jackson Fight for Life Foundation, call 314-291-1880 or visit www.marlinjackson.org.
