The NFL is constantly doing charity work and many of their players take it upon themselves to do their own charity events as well. Certainly, these are great opportunities for the NFL PR team, including recent hire Natalie Ravitz, to report on the good that the NFL does in various communities throughout America.
Recently, Bronco defensive end Derek Wolfe hosted an NFL draft party at Celebrity Lanes in Centennial, Colorado to benefit the Wolfe Pack Foundation. This Foundation helps underprivileged youth in Colorado and Ohio. The event also benefited the Active Force Foundation, a nonprofit that helps disabled people to participate in sports.
Called the Denver Draft Party, the event included many other Broncos teammates and was an opportunity for people to enjoy photos with the players and to be part of a silent auction for signed Broncos memorabilia.
This is just one of the many examples of the type of charity work that the NFL participates in, and that new hire Natalie Ravitz will be reporting on as the senior VP of communications. Ravitz has her work cut out for her, coming from Rupert Murdoch’s office as his Chief of Staff at New Corp. for three years.
