Padre Murphy's and Owner Tom Boyle in Glendale, AZ has been a long supporter of Pro Player Health Alliance (PPHA). The PPHA's passion for others' well-being and shared interest with Padre Murphy's in getting everyone, including NFL greats, treated for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has propelled them into being one of the leading groups supporting the cause in the valley. The most recent plans for an event will feature dental icon David Gergen, NFL legends Carl Eller, Roy Green, Isiah Robertson, Dave Krieg, Byron Williams and Derek Kennard debuting his new game Moose 81 while promoting sleep apnea awareness. Carl Eller will be personally inviting Larry Fitzgerald to the event that will be on January 28, 2015 at 7:00pm. Sponsors of the event will include Pro Player Health Alliance and Bud Light, who will be appearing with the Bud Light promo girls and illusionist.

RemZzzs, Carl Eller, who is the spokesman for RemZzzs and President of the Retired Players Association, and Pro Player Health Alliance have all come together to not only raise awareness of what has been labeled as the "Silent Killer" but offer ongoing support for the retired players and see them through the treatment process. While most of the players are turning to oral appliance therapy as opposed to CPAP due to intolerance of wearing a mask at night, Carl Eller and RemZzzs are offering a discount code "carl81" that can be used on the RemZzzs website when ordering mask liners to help CPAP users become more compliant.

The event will be open to the public. Pro Player Health Alliance invites anyone who is interested in sleep apnea treatment to attend and meet NFL greats. Any dentists are also encouraged to attend, as Pro Player Health Alliance has begun to band together a network of dentists willing to treat NFL greats for their dental and sleep apnea needs.
