Home Covid 19 Washington Football Team fundraiser goes virtual

Washington Football Team fundraiser goes virtual

Julie Donaldson, SVP of Media and Content alongside Santana Moss, Pregame analyst, will host the first-ever virtual Welcome Home Luncheon for the Washington Football Team.

The Washington Football Team announced on September 4 that they will conduct their annual Welcome Home Luncheon online for the first time in the history because of COVID-19. The event will be held virtually at 11:45 a.m. ET (21:15 IST). The money from the silent auction will be provided to the Washington Football Charitable Foundation’s COVID-19 relief efforts and social justice initiatives.

Welcome Home Luncheon is the annual event to pay tribute to the milestones achieved both on and off the field. The virtual meet holds special significance as it offers an excellent opportunity for both fans and corporates to come together to pay the tribute.

The best part of the virtual meet is that the fans will get to have a glimpse of the program for the first time. The entire fan base of the renowned Washington Football Team will get a glimpse of the program alongside raising the money for the Washington Charitable Foundation. The foundation has been playing a crucial role in providing support during the pandemic. Also, it is working on the social justice initiative across the DMV region. 

Three Washington players will be honored for their efforts on the field apart from their work off the field. The award includes the Bobby Mitchell offensive, Sam Huff defensive, and the Mark Moseley special teams player of the year award. 

The season doesn’t really feel like it’s begun until we hold the Welcome Home Luncheon. I have made a lot of unforgettable memories at this event. While I wish the Washington Football Team family could come together in person, I am thrilled that we’re able to invite our entire fanbase virtually and can’t wait to co-host with Julie. – said Santana Moss, Pregame analyst

Doc Walker will speak about the Charitable Foundation’s work and hand over the 2019 season player awards. Julie Donaldson and Santana Moss will host the event, which will feature remarks from special guests and a Q&A session with Prince George’s County native, Kevin Durant. 

Fans have already got a chance to participate in the silent auction and place their bids before the event. The bids are placed on experiences, autographed memorabilia, and much more.

The award ceremonies are not new for both fans and players. The virtual meet is making headlines because fans get to see the first-ever glimpse of the ceremony. The motive of raising funds for the social cause is a welcome move as the whole world unites for supporting COVID-19 relief efforts and social justice.
