PHILADELPHIA, PA – (November 9,2015) – Philadelphia Eagles tight end, Brent Celek, welcomed over 200 guests to Lincoln Financial Field on Monday, November 9, 2015 for A Night at the Linc with Brent Celek, presented by ACME, raising over $130,000 to benefit Brent Celek’s Take Flight Foundation.

Brent Celek’s Take Flight Foundation provides opportunities, support and resources along with daily support and life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and families in need throughout Greater Philadelphia. Specifically, funds raised will go toward programs like Operation Thanksgiving and Brent Celek’s Take Flight Zones and Celek’s long-term goal to provide mobile devices to every pediatric unit in Greater Philadelphia. Brent Celek’s Take Flight Foundation impacts the lives of over 105,000 people, annually.

"It’s important to me that I give back to a community that as supported me since I started my NFL career. Philadelphia has embraced me as an Eagle and entrepreneur and I plan on staying here for the rest of my life. The Take Flight Foundation has created a platform for me to provide opportunities, support and resources to children and families in need, throughout Greater Philadelphia," said Brent Celek.

For one evening only, Eagles stars, including, Jordan Matthews, Mark Sanchez, Zach Ertz, Connor Barwin, Trey Burton, Riley Cooper, Jason Kelce, Jon Dorenbos and Brett Boyko joined Celek in the Panasonic Club, at Lincoln Financial Field, to entertain more than 200 guests and to raise awareness for Celek’s foundation.

In addition to mingling with their favorite players, guests enjoyed a cocktail reception, sponsored by LiquidHub, live music, an incredible dinner and generously supported the foundation through auctions and a fund-a-need.

Glen Macnow of SportsRadio 94WIP served as the evening’s emcee, while Brian Baumhor of Pacific Coast Auctioneer served as the evening’s auctioneer during exciting live auctions.

In conjunction with the event, Uber, created a special promotion to donate $1 of every registered ride, on 11/8 and 11/9.
