Central Illinois NFL Athletes – Patriots’ Hoomanawanui, Texans’ White, Browns’ Tanney, and Colts’ Studebaker – to Host Monday Night Football “Game Watch


WASHINGTON, Ill., December 4, 2013 –On Monday, December 9th, Tight End Michael Hoomanawanui (Bloomington Central Catholic; New England Patriots), Offensive Lineman Cody White (Normal Community West; Houston Texans), Quarterback Alex Tanney (Lexington; Cleveland Browns), and Andy Studebaker (Eureka; Indianapolis Colts) have planned a Monday Night Football “Game Watch at Five Points Washington for all of the Washington (IL) High School Athletic Teams and their families.

Since the NFL quartet cannot be in attendance, they have partnered with local world-class meat and catering company, Echo Valley Meats, to provide a top-of-the-line, home-cooked meal in-front of large projection screens showcasing the Chicago Bears versus Dallas Cowboys game, which will be preceded by a special welcoming video.  Other companies helping to sponsor the event include PepsiCo and O.N.E. Coconut Water.

All of the Washington (IL) High School Athletic Teams played pivotal, first responder roles with clean up and relief efforts after the horrific tornadoes devastated Central Illinois on November 17.  Michael Hoomanawanui wanted to think of a special way to provide support from afar since he could not be there helping in person on site.  “Being born and raised in Central Illinois, we wanted to create a meaningful way to help out the Washington area and school for their hard work and resilient spirit.  I can’t imagine going through something like that, so we hope to provide comfort and a distraction from the situation for at least one night,” states Michael.

EVENT DETAILS:  Monday Night Football: Chicago Bears vs. Dallas Cowboys “Game Watch” Meal starting at 7:00PM CST with the game kicking off at 7:30PM CST in the Banquet Center of Five Points Washington at 360 N. Wilmor Road, Washington, IL 61571.  All Washington HS Athletic Teams and their families are invited.  Over 500 people are expected.
