Colts Mathis Hosting Annual Event

INDIANAPOLISn- BRANDed Management announced today Indianapolis Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis and former offensive tackle Tarik Glenn will co-host the annual Wishing on Stars benefit on Sunday, November, 20, 2016, at Ruth's Chris Steak House Indianapolis North. In addition to raising money for DREAM Alive, the event will celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Colts Super Bowl win in 2006 featuring members of the team in attendance.

“I am so excited to join with my championship teammates to celebrate our Super Bowl win and help out a special organization at the same time,” said Mathis. “My friend Tarik Glenn started DREAM Alive when he was a young Colts player, and its growth and impact since 2002 is a testimony to Tarik's integrity and the great work being done to this day by DREAM Alive. We're really looking forward to bringing together two winning organizations for a night of real celebration.”

An annual event since 2004, Wishing on Stars was first hosted by former Indianapolis Colts Tight End Marcus Pollard following the Colts / Titans game that year. This year, fellow Colts players (along with those from the 2006 Super Bowl winning team), Indiana Pacers, Country Music Artists, and other celebrities are expected to attend the event again following the Colts / Titans game.

The Wishing on Stars event will feature a cocktail reception courtesy of Premium Spirits brand, Beam Suntory, followed by celebrity introductions, and a four-course dinner. The evening will also feature a silent & live auction, a special presentation by NFL Players and Coaches. Celebrities will mingle and sign autographs, take selfies and photos in exchange for attendees' donations. The evening will feature a special musical performance to be announced as a lead up to the event.

Tarik Glenn, founder and Chairman of DREAM Alive, added, “The 2006 team was a special moment in time for all of us and we're looking forward to getting together in November. Wishing on Stars has always been a blast and I'm so honored that Robert and my teammates would honor DREAM Alive at our reunion. The city of Indianapolis gave us unbelievable support, and having the successful businesses and leaders of this great town join us for this celebration truly makes it all the more special.”
