2018 NFL Alumni Golf Classic 2018-05-17T13:39:58+00:00

TWO GREAT EVENTS. ONE GREAT CAUSE.

Thank you to every attendee, sponsor and volunteer for making the 16th annual Caring for Kids Banquet & Golf Classic a great success! A special thank you to KB Home,  Lexus of Austin & Lakeway and the NFL Alumni – Austin Chapter who helped raise more than $371,000 to benefit young victims of abuse in Travis County.

During the banquet, we presented the annual Couple of the Year award to Priscilla & Cory Redding. Not only has this couple given back to the community for years, they have dedicated their lives to helping children in the Travis County area through the Cory and Priscilla Redding Family Scholarship at the University of Texas.

The next morning, more than 30 former NFL players including Ed “Too Tall” Jones, Bill Bates and John Haines came to The Hills of Lakeway Signature Course course to partner up with team sponsors to compete for an all-expense paid trip to the NFL Alumni’s 2019 Super Bowl of Golf Tournament in North Carolina. Unfortunately due to weather conditions, the tournament was canceled that morning. Teams will still compete this summer for a spot in the Super Bowl of Golf Tournament.

2018 COUPLE OF THE YEAR

CORY & PRISCILLA REDDING

After a 13-year career in the NFL, former University of Texas Longhorn Cory Redding hung up his cleats to pursue his interests in education, business and philanthropy. With only 18 credit hours remaining, Redding re-enrolled at UT in the fall of 2016 and earned his degree in Learning and Applied Development. He now spends time greeting guests at Redd’s Barbershop, which the entrepreneur opened in 2013, and mentoring the scholarship recipients of the Cory and Priscilla Redding Family Scholarship. He and his wife, Priscilla Redding, personally funded this scholarship in 2012 for students in the College of Education at The University of Texas. Applicants must exhibit the Reddings’ basic values in life: desire, discipline and dedication.

Cory was voted the Indianapolis Colts’ “Man of the Year” in 2012 and was selected by his teammates as the recipient of the 2013 Ed Block Courage Award. Cory is currently an analyst on The Longhorn Network and does many speaking engagements nationwide. Cory and Priscilla are also very active in charitable activities all over the country, serving as board members for various organizations.

The Center for Child Protection is proud to honor 2018 Couple of the Year Cory and Priscilla Redding. Please join us on May 3rd at the Caring for Kids Banquet as we celebrate the incredible work they have done and continue to do for children.
