I am really looking forward to hosting an event with Pro Player Health Alliance in Atlanta.

With the favorite pastime of the fall lingering right around the corner how is it possible to incorporate the kick off party to the Arizona Cardinals season, raise money for the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association Charity and connect American Sleep and Breathing Academy (ASBA) diplomates with patients who are in need of sleep apnea treatment all in one event? Easy. Team up with David Gergen, CEO of Pro Player Health Alliance and Executive Director of the ASBA.

September 6, 2016 saw an entire day packed with constant media attention – multiple news channels and journalists were eager to get the word out about such a unique event. The night began with a crowd favorite, Bid Red (the AZ Cardinals mascot), breathing life into Cowboys Saloon located just north of the Cardinals Stadium.

As people continued to arrive, David Gergen and Lieutenant Holmes of the Phoenix Police showed appreciation for all that attended and announced the sponsors of the event – Arrowhead Pro Sleep Testing and Arrowhead Koala Centers for Sleep Disorders. Both Koala and Pro Sleep were gave away two free TVs at the end of the night, a promotion that generated thousands of attendees and well over 100 patients.

Cardinals RB and Rookie of the Year David Johnson, Cardinals legend Roy Green, Ron Wolfley and Derek Kennard delivered a message on the significance of being able to support local law enforcement, what sleep apnea awareness means to them and the excitement leading up to the upcoming season. Many people were stunned by the appearance of Gergen's life long friend Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, but nobody was as surprised as Ron Wolfley about what happened next; Ron Wolfley and one of the Cardinals owners, Nicole Bidwell, were presented as honorary police officers.

The event ended with a players’ reunion in the VIP room, interviews by the press and the announcement of winners in the silent auction benefiting the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association Charity. Overall, the combined efforts raised thousands of dollars for charity. The American Sleep and Breathing Academy, Arrowhead Pro Sleep Testing, Arrowhead Koala Centers for Sleep Disorders, Arizona Cardinals and the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association Charity teamed up to pull off the wonderful event. Dr. Bill Williams, who is the PPHA dentist for the Atlanta NFLPA chapter, flew in to witness the event and later said, "I am really looking forward to hosting an event with Pro Player Health Alliance in Atlanta."
