Guests arrived on the red carpet for Sports Night at Provident Jewelry in Jupiter on Thursday, April 13. Excitement was high as NFL greats and Super Bowl winners Bart Oates and Lawrence “L.T.” Taylor arrived to receive fans.
Bart Oates played for both the NY Giants and SF 49ers and has been a part of three Super Bowl championships. He was selected for five Pro Bowls and started 125 consecutive games during with career with the Giants. Lawrence (L.T.) Taylor is widely known as one of the greatest players in the history of football. His double-digit sacks were just one of the reasons he won the MVP in 1986. Taylor has two Super Bowl rings from his time with the Giants.
Highlights of the evening included a silent auction complete with a custom piece created by Provident Jewelry, meet and greets with former New York Giants Oates and Taylor, as well as live music from local artist Mister Trombone. Event attendees came together to support 13th Man Foundation, an organization that puts medical personnel on the field at youth sporting events to recognize and prevent serious injuries. The evening raised funds for the nonprofit and created a buzz about bringing a chapter to the local community.
“Provident Jewelry is pleased to be able to partner with such a worthy cause of protecting our youth,” said Seth Berman, Managing Partner of Provident Jewelry. “As a parent myself, I want my child to be safe while having fun and staying active.”
The 13th Man Foundation is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to youth sports safety. The goal is to put nurses, doctors, and EMTs on the sidelines of youth sporting events so that every kid playing youth sports can be treated immediately by a professional in case of an injury. The nurses, doctors, and EMTs have the right to pull a kid out of a game if deemed necessary and will advise parents whether the kid needs further medical assistance thereafter.
“Nothing is more important than the safety of young athletes,” said Larry Meistrich, co-founder of the 13th Man Foundation. “If you’re a parent with a child who plays youth sports, please contact your league and tell them to register so that 13th man representatives can be on the sideline of your kid’s games.”
