Omaha, NE -- (ReleaseWire) -- 03/22/2007 --Developing Relationships through Education And Mentoring (D.R.E.A.M.) a local nonprofit organization that provides assistance to at risk youth, is hosting a "A Night of Big Dreams" a fundraising event to be held Friday, April 13, 2007, at The Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Nebraska.
This is an exceptional opportunity to share A Night of Big Dreams to generate support for after school programs, scholarships, clothing, and the development of a group home for at risk youth. One hundred percent of the proceeds from A Night of Big Dreams will go to support the D.R.E.A.M. organization’s programs.
The D.R.E.A.M. MISSION is to expand opportunities for youth by providing positive role models. Steve Warren, who was a first team Big 12 selection, a member of Nebraska’s 1997 National Championship team, and later played in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers, founded the D.R.E.A.M. organization. Through his experience as a college and professional athlete, Steve came to realize young boys and girls are easily influenced by their "champions", especially those in professional sports and entertainment, so it is D.R.E.A.M.'s intention to leverage this "hero" worship by providing positive role models and exposing young boys and girls to new experiences. Our hope is to see youth graduate, further their educations, and become productive members in the community.
A Night of Big Dreams is a special event that brings together more than 30 Husker greats* that include, Tom Osborne, Ahman Green, Carlos Polk, Mike Rucker, Mike Minter, Eric Crouch, Tommie Frazier, Correll Buckhalter, Jerry Murtaugh, Mike Rozier, Michael Booker, Danny Noonan, Ralph Brown, Jay Foreman, Eric Warfield, DeJuan Groce, Steve Taylor, Shevin Wiggins, Jerrell Pippens, Keith Jones, Loran Kaiser, Jamie Burrow, Tony Ortiz, Wilson Thomas, Vershan Jackson, and many more.
