Touchdown In Your Town
To foster safe play and a love of football, the Detroit Lions travelled across the state of Michigan to five Detroit Lions youth football camps where the local high school team spent time mentoring camp attendees. At the close of camp, the Lions revealed a series of surprises. To kick things off, the United Dairy Industry of Michigan presented the high school with a $3,000 Chocolate Milk Grant that will provide nutritious milk at practices and games for all fall sports. USA Football was also committed to providing resources for the football teams—presenting a $1,000 equipment grant to each program. As part of a commitment to empowering youth and leveling the playing field for all, Detroit Lions Charities presented the youth and high schoolers with Lions apparel and bags and surprised the high school team with a $10,000 grant to benefit the football program! As one final surprise, Riddell, in partnership with Detroit Lions Charities, presented the high school programs with brand new SpeedFlex helmets!
The 2019 Detroit Lions Annual Golf Outing was held at TPC Michigan, raising more than $100,000 to benefit Playworks and their mission of creating safe and kind spaces for kids to be active. Lions executives, staff, coaches, players and Legends attended the outing in support of the cause, as many of them have personally witnessed the impact Playworks makes in local schools to encourage collaborative and healthy play.
Taste of the Lions is an extension of the league's own Taste of the NFL program, dedicated to fighting hunger, which began in 1992. Each spring join us to meet your favorite players, coaches and Legends, all while enjoying live music, a silent auction and food and drinks from Michigan's best restaurants and bars. Proceeds from the event benefit Eastern Market's community outreach programming, dedicated to improving healthy food access in underserved areas of Detroit.
