In addition to the award presentation, the dinner will also feature current and former Raiders players and coaches, Raiders executives, silent and live auctions, music and dancing. The event will be emceed by syndicated sports talk show host JT the Brick. The dinner is a great way to celebrate the honor of the CTE award with the recipient and the Raiders on a very personal level.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Teammates for Kids Foundation sponsored by Garth Brooks. No funds will come back to the Steering Committee. The Teammates for Kids Foundation spends 100% of all donations on the kids.
The cost of the dinner includes a complimentary wine tasting and hors d’oeuvres during the pre-dinner reception, and a four course meal complete with wine. Cost of the dinner is $125/person. Members of Oakland Raiders Steering Committee Booster Clubs, prior CTE attendees and Raiders season ticket holders receive a discounted price for the dinner of $115/person.
Although the dinner “technically” ends around 10:00 p.m., the party often continues late into the night. Don’t feel like driving home?

To secure the special CTE room rate, reservations must be made directly with the Hilton at 1-800-HILTONS and asking for the “COE” rate. The rate is guaranteed through February 23, 2013.
