The recent event held by the David Clowney Foundation at the Hanover, NJ Applebee's was a success.
Thanks to a barrage of Jets players who served food to customers (most of them Jets fans sporting the green and white), nearly $12,000 was raised for Clowney's upcoming trip to Ghana to help underprivileged children.
Those in attendance paid $65 for reservations, $50 of which went to the David Clowney Foundation.
Inspired by his recent Haiti trip, Clowney elected to travel to Ghana to help children there. The mission, scheduled for July 3-10, will include a visit to a hospital, a school in Kumasi and an orphanage in the capital city of Accra, and then he’ll set up a game to teach the children about American football.
Many Jets were in attendance, including: LaDainian Tomlinson, Bart Scott, Kyle Wilson, Kellen Clemens, Brandon Moore, James Ihedigbo, Joe McKnight, and Vernon Gholston.
Do you think anyone actually declined to be served by Gholston? He has the athleticism to get the food out in a brisk manner, but lacks the drive and integrity to make sure everything is in order. (OK, bad joke...)
