Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling Tournament raises $10k

Al Harris and about 30 of his teammates got together Monday night for Al’s second-annual Stars & Strikes Celebrity Bowling Tournament at Pro Bowl Lanes in Suamico.

Watch WBAY-TV’s report from Pro Bowl Lanes.

Money raised by this event will help Al take  underprivileged children in Brown County Christmas shopping next month (Watch last year’s shopping event here).

Here’s a quote from “Santa” Harris on evening’s festivities:

“I get really excited at Christmas time when my kids open up their presents, and just to help out some kids that you don’t know, to see the joy in their eyes that they get to go Christmas shopping when they may have not gotten the chance, it’s a good thing.”

Al Harris: Multi-sport athlete

Ever hang out at the Boys & Girls Club? Al Harris did. He spent a lot of time playing at the Boys & Girls Club of Pompano Beach, Fla when he was young while both of his parents worked:

“They were my baby sitters,”

Earlier this week, Harris joined fellow teammates kicker Mason Crosby, safety Nick Collins and 2008 draft picks Jordy Nelson, Brian Brohm and Matt Flynn at the 2008 Green Bay Packers Golf Invitational, which helped to benefit Al’s old Boys & Girls Club in Pompano Beach, FL, as well as The Barnett Foundation, which was founded by Nick Barnett’s wife, Amanda.

Al was a part-time performer on the links, as he was a little sore after chasing Roy Williams and Calvin Johnson all over the field last Sunday:

“I love to play when my body feels up to it,” Harris said.

The one hole 3irty1 was excited to play was No. 17 at the Blackwolf Run golf course. The first person to sink a hole-in-one on this hole would receive a $50,000 Corvette. And we all know Al has a thing high-performance cars. Here’s the view of No. 17 from the tee box, looking at the green:

Sadly, no word on any holes-in-one on this day. Not surprising, as you look at that hilly green! But I think it’s safe to say we can give the “best dressed” award to 3irty1. And check out that form!

The Green Bay Press Gazette has more photos right here.

Official Al Harris Tailgate: Photos and a note from Al

Green Bay Packers’ corner back Al Harris recently launched his “Operation Shutdown” campaign on the football field. To promote this campaign and thank his fan base, 3irty1 executed a fan-tailgate. The tailgate helped obtained exposure for Al Harris as a player and a brand, through number recognition, tag recognition, “Harris 31” eyeblacks and wristbands. In addition, it was also a great promotional event to start promoting his Pro Bowl bid which begins Monday, October 15th.

A Note from Al:

Thank you all for stopping by my tailgate before our game against the Bears. Although we did not get the victory we wanted, I assure you that we will bounce back from that loss. I appreciate the support of all of you, and it’s a great feeling to have thousands of fans cheering me on and wearing my eyeblacks and wristbands. Look out for more information about Operation Shutdown and my quest to be voted in by all of you into this year’s Pro Bowl. The voting starts next Monday!

Please check for your pictures on this site, and don’t hesitate to leave me a message.

Thanks again to GMC, Buffalo Wild Wings, Tony Roma’s Restaurant, Nicolet, Bergstrom Hummer, the Green Bay Packers and FAM for making this amazing event happen.

Thank you again, and stay tuned for more this season!

ABOUT: Al Harris is one of the most consistent cornerbacks in the NFL. With a reputation of being a “shutdown” corner who is asked to cover the NFL’s elite receivers every week, Harris is entering his 10th NFL season. Respected by his peers, quarterbacks rarely throw to his side which reflects in the increased productivity of his teammates. Dependable and durable, Harris hasn’t missed a game since the start of the 1998 season, having played in 154 straight games (144 regular season games, 10 playoff games). In 2007 Harris launched “Operation Shutdown,” his own personal campaign highlighting his undying effort to shutdown his side of the field.
