The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation Hosts 3rd Annual Fundraiser Benefiting Metro Atlanta Charities

PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation officially turns "three" this week, and the NFL enters its fifth week of regular season play, there are lots of reasons to celebrate. The Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation will host a football-themed dinner fundraiser, the Super Seattle Steakout Benefit Bash, on Sunday, October 19, 2008, at Stoney River Legendary Steaks in Duluth. Attendees of the event will join fellow fans on a night out at one of Atlanta's premiere steak houses for mouth-watering steaks, delicious drinks and football. Attendees can bid on authentic NFL football gear -- jerseys, helmets, footballs -- and other unique items, while catching the Seattle Seahawks as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; all to benefit children in need in Georgia through the Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation.

One lucky attendee will even have the opportunity to win a 52" SHARP HDTV AQUOS LCD TV, courtesy of Aaron's Sales and Lease.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Atlanta-based charities through the Jim Mora Count On Me Family Foundation. The following four charities have received annual partnership grants from the Foundation: Boys & Girls Club of Metro Atlanta, Camp Twin Lakes, Gwinnett Children's Shelter, and Special Olympics Georgia--the Foundation's signature charity; this year's grant cycle will take place in late October.
