“The Redskins Alumni do a lot of great work in the community,” said Washington Redskins General Manager Bruce Allen. “This is a great chance to support the organization, meet some of the all-time greats from years past, and see London Fletcher honored for his contributions.”
Players scheduled to appear include 1984 Pro Football Hall of Famer Charley Taylor, 1982 NFL MVP Mark Moseley, three-time pro bowlers Pat Fischer, Roy Jefferson and Mike Nelms, Ron “The Dancing Bear” McDole, two-time Super Bowl champions Ravin Caldwell and Darryl Grant, two-time All-Pro defensive end Dexter Manley, punter Mike Bragg and offensive lineman Ron Saul.
Tickets for the event are $75 per person, and there will also be a silent auction of special collectibles that might make an excellent holiday present for the Redskins fan in any family.
