More than a dozen former Dallas Cowboys are teaming up to host dinner, cocktails and a silent auction for charity on Thursday night and to honor ex-Cowboys and Ohio State Buckeyes Ron Springs and Terry Glenn.
The event, called The Brotherhood 4 Good, begins at 6 p.m. at Verona Villa, located at 6591 Dallas Parkway in Frisco. Proceeds from the dinner and auction will benefit Springs' and Glenn's charitable foundations.
A Cowboys running back for five seasons, Springs died in 2011 at age 54. Having been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1990, he had his right foot and two toes on his left foot amputated and, in 2006, former teammate Everson Walls donated one of his kidneys to Springs.
Glenn, a Cowboys receiver from 2003 to 2007, died in an auto accident in Irving last November.
Among Cowboys scheduled to host the Thursday night event are Walls, Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Tony Dorsett, Hall of Fame receiver Drew Pearson, Billy Joe DuPree, Doug Donley, Eddie George, Bruce Thornton, Preston Pearson, Tony Hill, Mike Wiley and Ron Springs' son, Shawn. Each table at the dinner will be hosted by a former Cowboy.
