On Tuesday June 16, the Eric and Jessie Decker Foundation, a non-profit organization that strives to positively impact the lives of US military service members and veterans as well as animals, hosted it’s first annual fundraiser “On Deck with the Deckers” charity casino night at the Rosewall in Nashville. All event proceeds from the evening will benefit the foundation.
This year’s event brought together members of the Titans, Predators, and some of Nashville’s best artists along with a cocktail reception and open bar provided by One Hope Wine, Angel’s Envy Bourbon, Yazoo Beer and Speakeasy Spirits. Celebs and guests competed in casino-style gaming, bid on silent auction items including VIP sports experiences and exclusive memorabilia and enjoyed the evening in a relaxed, enjoyable private environment of approximately 120 guests.
Along with surprise performances by some of the celebrity guests, one of the evening’s highlights included a special tribute to Shon Wilson and his service dog Rommy. Wilson was the Decker’s first recipient of a service dog (Rommy) and guests were able to learn first hand about the benefits service dogs provide while Rommy showed off his talents on stage to guests.
In addition to the Deckers, celebrity guests included Charlie Whitehurst, Wesley Woodyard, Chuck Wicks, Demaryius Thomas, Troy Coleman (Cowboy Troy), Joe Don (Rascal Flatts), JT Hodges, Mike Fisher (Nashville Predators), and Wesley Woodyard.
This year’s ‘On Deck with the Deckers’ was made possible by the following Sponsors: Angel’s Envy, OneHope Wine, Yazoo Brewing, Speakeasy Spirits, G2G, Kiawah Partners, Adeptus, Fave4, Oola, Karma Wellness Water, Kind Bars, GM Advisory, Principle Cigars, and Ryan Miller/Millworks.
