Join Matt Light and Julian Edelman for charity


Patriots left tackle Matt Light and wide receiver Julian Edelman will be holding a charity event at Davio’s in Patriot Place near Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA on May 11 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm. Joining Light and Edelman will be Sports Illustrated’s Peter King and’s Mike Reiss, two guys that really know their football. Reiss especially is as knowledgeable about the Patriots as it gets in the media. Matt Light discussed his charity event on the “Patriots Today” web video program, which you can view here. King wrote about the event in his “Monday Morning Quarterback” column, including all of the perks and how to get tickets. Click “Continue Reading” to get the details:

We’ve added a couple of perks to the football event of the spring in New England: the New England Locker Room Luncheon, benefiting the Matt Light Foundation and the Greater Boston Food Bank. The luncheon (Tuesday May 11, 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.) will be in a small room at the outstanding Foxboro restaurant, Davio’s, a few long spirals from Gillette Stadium, and we’ve got some tickets remaining. You’ll hear Light, the Patriots’ left tackle, and Patriots wideout Julian Edelman talking about their lives and their team, and you’ll hear me and Patriots beat man Mike Reiss of grill them. Autographs, photos, baby-kissing — the $1,000 donation will buy you anything your heart desires.

We’re also throwing in three perks (well, the first two are perks, and the third — well, you decide).

1. One lunch guest will receive two prime tickets to the game of the season, November’s New England-Indianapolis showdown.

2. One lunch guest will have Light record a voice-mail greeting on both home and cell phones.

3. One lunch guest will get me, after visiting 21 training camps this summer, as his or her personal fantasy-football consultant. I’ll either go with you to your draft, or I’ll talk you through your draft before you go in.

Last thing: I’m involved with the Food Bank, and I know the incredible work it does (one in every 13 eastern Massachusetts residents gets food annually from the agency, totaling 31 million pounds of food), and I know the hands-on work Light’s foundation does with at-risk teens across the country. Both are very much in need of your assistance. If you can help, I’ll be forever grateful. I realize how many needy causes there are in the country, and I thank you for the generosity you’ve shown the causes (Five for Fighting, Dr. Z) I’ve championed in this column. I could use about 10 of you to step up if you’re at all able. Thanks.
