Ravens Ellerbe, Gradkowski, Flacco help raise funds for Perry Hall High School

018-300x2981

The gift of giving this holiday season shined bright at Perry Hall Senior High School in Perry Hall, Maryland on Tuesday night.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, guard/center Gino Gradkowski and quarterback Joe Flacco were on hand signing autographs with portions of the proceeds benefitting the sports and academic programs for the school.

For $99 fans were able to obtain each player’s autograph all while helping the school raise much-needed funds.

“Anytime there is a chance to come out and give back to the community. Whether it is donations, autograph signings whatever it is it is just always good to give back.” linebacker Dannell Ellerbe stated when asked about his involvement in the nights events.

Fans were treated to a silent auction featuring numerous sports memorabilia and raffles where the top prize was a Ravens 10th anniversary 40? signed banner.

Even as the long lines formed to get the autographs, the patrons were all smiles. “Are you kidding me? What a way to help the school out. These are some of my favorite players and to be able to meet them and help raise money for the school here is a awesome thing,” stated one fan.

 

It is a great opportunity. You know we have every Tuesday off and I try to get out to do what I can. You know the school is trying to raise money here which is awesome and anytime you can get a chance to help out around the community it is part of our job.” responded Gradkowski on his participation on this special night.

For some it was a chance to meet their favorite players, for others it was perhaps a last minute holiday present but for the players it was a chance to help out on a day off for a great cause.
