Playmakers special events raise funds for our After-School and Summer Academy which follows a Character Development and Academic Curriculum.
Every year we rely on good people like yourselves to attend, and hopefully enjoy, our fund raising events. The funds earned are re-invested directly into our youth programs. With your help, we are continually growing our programs and developing new mentors for our youngsters.
The Playmakers Creed exemplifies our core mission of empowering youth and strengthening families.
Each Spring The Playmakers hosts a fundraising dinner to benefit The Playmakers After-School Academy and Summer Program.

Past Events: Our Annual Crab Feed
In 2014, we had Dave Bender, Channel 13 weatherman, as our emcee and auctioneer. It was an exciting auction, with many packages like a one week stay in Mexico or Giants tickets. Each year our Playmaker Legends Crab Feed entertains over 300 guests. Our special guests include former and current NFL players of character. World Boxing Champions and Professional Golfers also are former guests. Additionally, current college players and local high school players who are involved in our program make it a great evening.
Omaha events usually include HUSKER football players along with former NFLers. Our real stars are the Playmaker kids who always amaze the audiences with their inspiring messages and accomplishments.
