Dallas—The Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club joined volunteers from UnitedHealthcare Wednesday in spreading some holiday cheer at the Brady Center in Dallas, serving Christmas cookies and playing Bingo with approximately 150 senior citizens.
The Brady Center, a service site of Catholic Charities of Dallas, provides low-income senior citizens with hot meals, activities, social events and health screenings. Rookie players Travis Frederick, Gavin Escobar, Jeff Heath, DeVonte Holloman, Cameron Lawrence, Joseph Randle, Lanear Sampson, J.J. Wilcox and Terrance Williams were met with lively applause and enthusiasm by the center's elder patrons before diving into bingo, with winners receiving a special piece of Cowboys memorabilia. All participants took home an official 2013 team photo.
The 2013 Dallas Cowboys Rookie Club, presented by UnitedHealthcare, is an annual outreach program designed to introduce the team's newest members to the importance of giving back to the North Texas community. Wednesday's event at the Brady Center is the group's seventh appearance of the year. The rookies are expected to make one final community appearance of the 2013 season later this month.
