A benefit gala to transform lives and communities
One of the most electrifying athletes to ever play sports, Pro Football Hall of Famer, Deion Sanders is an eight-time Pro Bowler and two-time Super Bowl champion. He played 14 NFL seasons for the Atlanta Falcons, San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens. He is the only person in professional sports history to play in the World Series and the Super Bowl.
A philanthropist at heart, Sanders, alongside Stand Together, launched Prime 5, a $21 million fundraising initiative that will support for-purpose organizations that empower Dallas residents to transform their lives and find a path out of poverty.
