Charles was “Up Close” and “In the Action” at the Pro Bowl!!!

Charles up close at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii

Recently, Charles returned from the Pro Bowl with smiles from ear to ear. When he first arrived in Hawaii, he thought it was “paradise”. Thanks to many sponsors, Charles’ itinerary was jam-packed. He and his mother first attended the NFL Pro Bowl Festival at Kapiolani Park, where they watched the Military Challenge. Charles participated in some of the different sporting activities set up in the park, like the Quarterback Throw and the Extra Point Kick.

Next, was on to the Private tour of the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor with the San Diego Chargers Cheerleading Squad. “Needless to say, Charles loved being the center of attention with the Charger Cheerleaders and I think he still has a smile on his face.”

From there they headed to the NFL Pro Bowl All Star Block Party Waikiki on Kalakaua Avenue. Here they watched some NFL players on stage doing interviews and interacting with the crowd.

Then it was on to NFL Tailgate Party. There were different tents with food and entertainment to reflect the 20’s, 30’s 50’s 80’s, 90’s, and 00. Charles and his mom interacted with the NFL mascots as well as got autographs and took pictures with the Pro Bowl Cheerleaders. Charles also got to get a few autographs with some other NFL players that were there to watch the Pro Bowl.

Finally, Charles arrived at the Pro-Bowl where he watched his favorite team (NFC) win the game! Charles was ecstatic when he caught one of the gloves thrown into the stands by an NFC player that was worn during the game!
