Romo, Witten and local sports celebs help fallen officers

Dallas -- Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and several other Dallas sports celebrities are donating auction items to help families of Dallas police officers killed and injured in the line of duty during last Thursday's shootings.

"Dine for Dallas Blue" will be held at Dos Jefes restaurant Thursday night from 5p.m to 2 a.m., with all proceeds benefiting the fallen and injured officers affected by last week's tragic events.

The dinner will also feature a silent auction with dozens of high-value items donated by local celebrities, including:

 

*Dinner for seven at Nick & Sam's Steakhouse with Dallas Cowboys Tony Romo, Jason Witten and Jason Garrett.

*An opportunity to sit next to Mavericks owner Mark Cuban at a Mavs game.

*The chance to have Rangers manager Jeff Banister coach your youth baseball team

*Attend a Rangers game with Travis Federick and other Cowboys offensive linemen

 

Dos Jefes co-owner Joseph Palladino is a retired NYPD officer.

"We have an obligation as citizens to give back to the police officers who risk their lives for us every day and I am proud to do so," said Palladino.


Andy Alberth, the driving force behind Romo's postponed National Fantasy Football Convention, helped put together the fundraiser.

The Ben and Skin Show also helped secure some auction items, and will be broadcasting live from the event.  You can call The Fan (105.3 KRLD-FM) to place bids on auction items all day Thursday.  The number to call is (877) 881-1053.

Dos Jefes is located at 2816 Fairmont St. in Dallas.
