Andy Alberth, the brains behind Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s postponed National Fantasy Football Convention, is hosting a fundraiser Thursday for the police officers and their families affected by the recent tragic shooting in Dallas.
Alberth, along with owners of Nick and Sam’s restaurant, is teaming up with retired New York Police Department officer Joe Palladino for “Dine for Dallas Blue” at Dos Jefes restaurant Thursday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m.
All of the proceeds will be given to the fallen and injured officers and their families.
Never miss a local story.
Romo is donating two signed footballs and a dinner. Former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is scheduled to stop by. Alberth is also expecting donations from Cowboys tight end Jason Witten and golfer Jordan Speith.
Several other Cowboys are slated to be in attendance.
Dos Jefes is at 2816 Fairmont St. in Dallas.
