Also featured will be a Pro Football Hall of Fame souvenir football autographed by Brett Favre and other members of the Enshrinee Class of 2016. Two lithographs, featuring Hall of Famers Jim Taylor and Don Shula, will be up for bids, along with other exciting.
Ticket holders for the event will receive a souvenir gold medallion minted exclusively for the Draft Day Experience. Each medallion comes in an attractive case and features the Draft Day logo on one side and the Pro Football Hall of Fame logo on the other.
Doors will open at 7 p.m. and the festivities will get underway at 7:30. The 2016 NFL Draft will be shown on giant screens in the hotel ballroom as guests enjoy delicious food, an open bar, and a roundtable discussion between picks. The roundtable will be moderated by Kenny Roda of WHBC radio, who will talk about each pick with former NFL players who will be in attendance at the event.
Former players scheduled to attend include: Hall of Famer Dave Robinson of the Green Bay Packers and Washington Redskins; Cleveland Browns greats Don Cockroft, Hanford Dixon and Felix Wright; Anthony Griggs (Eagles/Browns); Jeff Hartings (Lions/Steelers); and Marv Kellum (Steelers/Cardinals).
Tickets are just $125, with proceeds going toward the Legends Landing assisted living facility that will be a part of the planned Pro Football Hall of Fame Village.
