With the potential money raised, the track team will head to the AAU Junior Olympics in Des Moines, Iowa at the end of July. The fundraiser will take place at the Conshy Corner Tavern located at: 600 E Hector St, Conshohocken, PA. The price is a $20 minimum, and this will get you a picture with Smith’s Super Bowl rings.
“I know how much the win meant to the people here. The ring means a lot to me as well, but it will also be sitting in my safe for the next year or few years, so I think it will be a great opportunity to take a picture with it and make money for the kids.” Smith said. This is a great cause that Smith has been interested in for a long time, originally coming up with the fundraiser idea a year ago.
