Last weekend, the lovely Lyons family from La Jolla, CA gifted their daughter Maddie with a really great experience. Maddie, a burgeoning track star, got a one-on-one training session with NFL legend (Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Raiders) and US Olympic track star Willie Gault. A training session they won through A Cause for Entertainment’s Silent Raffle!
Maddie’s father Todd said that he and his wife Holly were looking for a gift for their daughter when they found A Cause For Entertainment’s raffle on the Charity Buzz website. Huge football fans themselves, they were ecstatic to see so many of their interests collide, and all for a good cause.
Maddie and Willie trained at the UCLA Drake Stadium, focusing on form, starting technique, and overall game plan to help Maddie’s track career. Maddie’s family, including her parents, sister Margot, and uncle were in attendance to cheer her on.
This training session is just one of many fabulous prizes offered year after year at the A Cause for Entertainment Online Auction that runs annually in October. Check back here for your chance to win a training session with Willie Gault!
Thank you so much to the Lyons family for coming out and supporting women on the track and in their fight against Breast Cancer!
