I’m far from the first one to post this video — Hogs Haven and the DC Sports Bog have already been there — but it’s still amusing, and with the event just a couple days away it’s worth mentioning again.
This is a promo for the Midnight Masquerade Ball in Tyson’s Corner, which promises to turn the Ritz Carlton “into a Venetian carnival featuring world-class entertainment, luxurious silent auction items, and of course a balloon drop” for New Year’s Eve. And it’s being hosted by an assortment of Redskins players, several of whom — including Reed Doughty, Kedric Golston, Lorenzo Alexander, and Chris Wilson — you can see in the video above. And I do recommend sticking with the video. It starts off slow but really picks up when Eye Of The Tiger kicks in at about 0:45 in.
The event benefits a couple of charities — one a foundation that helps children, the other an orphanage in Zimbabwe — and should also be a pretty entertaining time. And (for the moment, at least), tickets are available at a pretty substantial discount through a limited time deal at Living Social.
Also, while I’m discussing upcoming charity events, Lorenzo Alexander, and Kedric Golston, I should mention that registration is now open for the duo’s second annual Ride To Provide bike event. Register now — the event is just 145 days away!
