Washington Redskins v Dallas Cowboys
Who wouldn’t want to dine with The Triplets?

Dallas Cowboys fans, take note: legendary quarterback Troy Aikman is auctioning off an opportunity to dine with three of America’s Team’s most legendary players.

In conjunction with the United Way, Aikman is raffling off a one-night experience with himself, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin in exchange for a donation to the organization, which provides services to the needy in North Texas. In addition to hotel accommodations and airfare, the lucky winner will also join Aikman, Smith, and Irvin for dinner at an as-yet-unnamed Dallas restaurant that will probably end up being Nick & Sam’s Steakhouse.

As an ambassador for the United Way, Aikman also encouraged Dallasites to make donations to the United Way’s Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, which will be donated to local organizations that are currently assisting evacuees that have been relocated to shelters in North Texas, including the “mega-shelter” at Downtown Dallas’ Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center.

A $10 donation to the United Way scores fans 100 entries in Aikman’s raffle, which also includes other prizes like signed memorabilia and personalized “thank you” cards.
