David Akers Kicking in Spring event at Cescaphe Ballroom Wednesday June 2nd


The 5th Annual David Akers Kicking in Spring event is presented by Lincoln Financial Group on June 2nd, 2010 from 6-10pm at Cescaphe Ballroom (923 N. 2nd Street). The proceeds benefit the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The event was organized in 2007 by long-time Philadlephia Eagles kicker David Akers, whose "David's Locker" program helps families in need who have children staying in a hospital.

"We were looking for a fun, relaxed event to raise money for "David’s Locker" program at CHOP that our sponsors could enjoy and want to be there instead of feeling as though they were obligated to be there," says Rose Cunningham, director of the event.

In addition to this yearly event, Akers also established the "David Akers Kicks for Kids Foundation," which was founded in 2001. The foundation also works in conjunction with Children's Hospital.

Tickets are on sale now for the event and cost $150 per person. The attire is casual, and Cunnigham says that everyone who attends the event is sure to enjoy themselves.David Akers Kicking in Spring event at Cescaphe Ballroom Wednesday June 2nd

"People should expect a night of amazing food, fun auction items, a comedy performance by comedian Joe Conklin, and most importantly knowing that they are making a difference in a child’s life with their support."
