DALLAS (CBSDFW.com) – Ever heard the name Leigh Steinberg? How about the name Jerry Maguire?
Steinberg is a high-powered sports agent who inspired the movie and has represented legendary athletes like Troy Aikman, John Elway, Lennox Lewis, Oscar de la Hoya, and Ben Roethlisberger. He also just so happens to throw one of the biggest, baddest parties each year during super weekend.
This year marks the 25th Annual Leigh Steinberg Party, and he plans to make it the best one yet! The day will be divided into two parts: 1-5pm is the celebrity meet-and-greet then at 8pm, the big game party begins. The Mercedes-Benz Twitter Race winner will be revealed at 3:30 that afternoon, and there are lots of A-listers taking part in the event. To name a few:
• Heavyweight boxing champion Evander “Real Deal” Holyfield
• Fallout Boy’s Pete Wentz
• Run DMC and MTV reality star Reverend Run
• NY Yankee Nick Swisher
• Tennis superstar Serena Williams
Steinberg is also friends with Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords so there will likely be some tributes to her as well. This year, YMCA has been chosen as the charity to receive proceeds from this benefit. Mercedes-Benz is sponsoring the family-friendly event Saturday the 5th at Eddie Deen’s Ranch – 944 S. Lamar, Dallas, 75202. Spread the buzz.
