Denver Broncos Storm Ocean Prime to Serve Dinner and Raise $135,000 for Von Miller’s Foundation, Von’s Vision
Wednesday, November 13, 2013
DENVER, CO (Nov. 13, 2013) - Denver Broncos' All-Pro Linebacker Von Miller and 25 of his teammates celebrated their victory over the Chargers by donning aprons at Ocean Prime on Monday night to raise $135,000 at Miller's First Annual Celebrity Waiter Night.
Guests mingled with half of the Denver Broncos' roster at the sold-out event, including Mike Adams, Champ Bailey, David Bruton, Kayvon Webster, Omar Bolden, Rahim Moore, CJ Anderson, Tony Carter, Wesley Woodyard, Quentin Jammer, Andre Caldwell, Duke Ihenacho, Derek Wolfe, Demaryius Thomas, Montee Ball, Ben Garland, John Youboty, Chad Bumphis, Quinton Carter, Ronnie Hillman, Wes Welker and more as they rallied behind Miller to support Von's Vision.
Broncos players displayed varying levels of serving expertise, some handling trays of salad as well as they handle a football on the field, while others wisely played it safe cracking pepper.
"We're supposed to break stuff on the field," joked Miller before the event, "but we're trying to be a little more careful here. It's all about quality of service!
But really, I asked these guys to come out to support my foundation and I'm not surprised by the turnout. It just goes to show you what kind of guys we have on our team."
Following a touching testimony from Rhonda Colbert and her son, Jace, the first beneficiaries of Von's Vision, Miller wrote a check for $30,000 to his foundation. With his generous gift, event ticket sales, donations and funds from a live and silent auction, Miller's First Annual Celebrity Waiter Night raised $135,000.
That money will be used for a simple mission that is close to Miller's heart: getting kids in Denver the eye exams and corrective eyewear they need.
