College Football All-Star Game Benefits Connections Program
At 5:30 p.m. on January 23rd, the Eastham Energy College All Star game will take place at Arizona State University's Sun Devils Stadium. Every top football conference, from the Big Ten to the SEC to the Pac 10 will have players out on the field, hoping to make big impressions on the NFL scouts in attendance.
The game is being presented by the Gila River Indian owned and operated Sheraton Wild Horse, with a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales going to Native American Connections, a charitable organization which has been in operation since 1972. Native American Connections has grown from a grassroots entity that operated one program aimed at helping Native American men in recovery from substance abuse to 15 programs throughout Central Phoenix, focused on affordable housing and behavioral health services, changing the lives of 5,000 individuals and families a year.
