Down, Set... Stir! Pro Football Wives Compete in "Supper Bowl" to Benefit Children's Charities

Media Advisory/Video Available

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 4, 2011) - This Saturday, as burly men gear up to take to the turf, more than a dozen professional football players' wives in Dallas will compete in an intense battle of their own kind -- the Supper Bowl! Will the winner of the AFC vs. NFC wives kitchen battle foreshadow Sunday's game outcome?

What
The inaugural "Dream Dinners Supper Bowl" pits AFC wives against NFC wives to see which team can make as many family dinners as possible in one hour. All meals assembled -- some 200 family meals -- will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas, and the winning team also receives $15,000 from Dream Dinners to benefit children's charities throughout the US.

Who
The "Dream Dinners Supper Bowl" is hosted and sponsored by Dream Dinners, the nation's leading meal assembly chain. Game day players are members of Off the Field, the NFL Wives Association, and are wives of current or retired professional football players representing teams nationwide.

At www.dreamdinners.com fans can donate to the cause, and VOTE if they think the Supper Bowl will foreshadow the results of Sunday's big game, while also viewing game day action and Dream Dinners menus complete with delicious football dinner ideas.

Visuals
Event video and SOT featuring great game play action is available beginning 5 p.m. CT Feb. 5 at http://dreamdinners.com/main.php?static=ho_mediakit
. Footage will include:

  • Women in professional football jerseys, paired with special Supper Bowl aprons, frantically assembling fix-and-freeze dinners and running them into the Meal Zone.
  • Head-to-head play as wives mix and measure their way to top, while trying to avoid penalties such as "Food Fumbles," "Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen," and "Roughing the Cooker!"
  • Feel-good footage of winning team accepting the trophy and oversized $15,000 donation check.
  • Time lapse video of contest.

Why
Dream Dinners knows getting a winning family dinner on the table can plays a key role in any household, but especially in homes with children who are ill. The president of Off the Field herself, Ericka Lassiter, wife of former Arizona Cardinals player Kwamie Lassiter, know this all too well, as their youngest son currently battles Sickle Cell Anemia. The two organizations have now joined forces in this fun and meaningful event to help other families in need.
