Written by Biggs: Al Harris suffers torn ACL by Brad Biggs November 22, 02009

The Green Bay Packers paid a high price in their victory over the San Francisco 49ers this afternoon at Lambeau Field.

Veteran cornerback Al Harris has been lost for the season with a torn ACL, according to a league source.

Harris, who turns 35 next month, was injured in the fourth quarter. He was running in coverage with 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree when he went down. Harris was taken by cart to the locker room.

Harris and Charles Woodson have been one of the strengths of the Packers’ defense, and he’s been a model of durability throughout his career. Harris missed four games last season with a spleen issue, but had played in 16 games in five previous seasons for Green Bay.

In Harris’ absence, the Packers will likely have to rely more on Tramon Williams. He wasn’t the only serious injury concern for the team either. Pass rusher Aaron Kampman went down in the third quarter with a left knee injury. His knee buckled, and he made it to the sideline before taking a cart to the locker room.

On November 9, 2009, Al Harris is proud to be hosting the inaugural “Wishing on Stars” celebrity serve.  The event will serve as an introduction to his new foundation, the Harris Family Foundation, which he and his wife recently established. The Harris Family Foundation’s mission is two-fold.  One major goal is to help raise awareness and support for children affected by Crohn’s disease, and the other is to support much-needed youth programs in Broward County, Florida, where Harris was raised.

ABOUT WISHING ON STARS

Wishing on Stars grants special wishes for terminally ill children, creating wonderful memories, building hope and strength, and providing laughter and normalcy to children who are forced to grow up too quickly. Wish children are courageous, and by granting a wish, Wishing on Stars helps renew their childlike energy and enthusiasm, even if only for a brief period of time.

ABOUT CROHN’S DISEASE

Crohn’s disease is a chronic disease that causes severe inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract and affects over 500,000 people, 100,000 of which are under the age of 18. The cause of Crohn’s disease has yet to be determined, and thus there is no cure.  It is events like this one and thanks to generous folks like you  money for research can be raised to create hope for the thousands of people affected by this illness.

For more information about Crohn’s disease please log on to http://www.ccfa.org

The History Behind the Stars

It’s been over a decade since Kevin Carter of the Tennessee Titans launched the first “Wish Celebrity Serve“.  Due to its incredible success, Kevin passed the torch to Marcus Pollard of the Indianapolis Colts. Since then Reggie Wayne has carried the event and helped make it one of the most successful fundraising events in Indianapolis among professional athletes. This year the event will not only occur in Tennessee and Indianapolis, but Al Harris will extend the honor to members of the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Milwaukee Brewers. In true NFL tradition of “family”, this event will continue to grow virally among the players and will be an event that grants wishes to families for years to come.

On November 9, 2009, raise your glass and celebrate with us for the inaugural “Wishing on Stars” Celebrity Serve.  This year’s event takes place at Mo’s…A Place for Steaks. Packers All-Pro Defensive Back Al Harris will host this year’s gathering along with other members of the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Milwaukee Brewers to help raise money for the Harris Family Foundation.  In tradition of the event, the evening will feature celebrities “waiting on” guests, signing autographs, or simply accepting donations to do just about anything within reason in the name of charity. Celebrities will be encouraged to sign autographs, leave personalized voicemails, perform favorite songs and/or dances and more in exchange for attendees’ donations.

We will begin the evening with a cocktail reception followed by a spectacular dinner, a silent and live auction and a special presentation.

We are offering two participation opportunities, a silent auction contribution and/or a celebrity gift bag insertion.  All contributors will receive recognition in the event program. Celebrity gift bag contributors are subject to receive added benefits outlined in the sponsorship package. Please review the attached pages for more information about our available options.

On behalf of the Harris Family Foundation, Al Harris, Mo’s…A Place for Steaks, and All Access Promotions, thank you for considering participation.  With your help, we can succeed in making a difference in the lives of many deserving children!
