Andy and Jordan Dalton Host 'Holiday Hearts' Program

Posted Dec 16, 2016

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife, Jordan, played host to 11 families for the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation’s Holiday Hearts program on Thursday.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife, Jordan, played host to 11 families for the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation’s Holiday Hearts program on Thursday.

Families enjoyed a holiday-themed evening with Andy and Jordan, including dinner, holiday treat-making, a Build-a-Bear station, games and presents. Each family received a family gift and Christmas tree along with additional gifts from their wish lists. Most importantly, the families could spend quality time with each other, something the Daltons cherish this time of year.

“Holiday Hearts is one program that brings so much joy to us each year,” said Andy Dalton. “These families go through so much throughout the year, whether it’s hospital visits or doctors’ appointments. Sharing the Christmas spirit, and giving them an experience they might not otherwise get is something Jordan and I will never forget.”

Dalton is the Bengals’ nominee for the 2016 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award. The sixth-year pro from Texas Christian University is among 32 team winners in contention for the league WPMOY Award, the only NFL award recognizing a player’s off-field community service and playing excellence combined.

Dalton has been committed to giving back since his rookie season in the league.  Dalton and his wife launched their foundation in 2011 with the mission to provide daily support, opportunities, resources and life-changing experiences to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in Cincinnati and Fort Worth.  The Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation has raised $2.1 million and has reached the lives of nearly 2.5 million individuals through its five signature community outreach programs, including Holiday Hearts.

    KeiVarae Russell’s journey into the guts of the roster joust with impressive play is a peek at how the Bengals are approaching personnel these days with Duke Tobin, Marvin Lewis, and a relatively deep roster that allows them the flexibility to develop with the last seven roster spots. It’s also a bow to one of Paul Brown’s oldest and most imitated innovations known as the taxi squad.

    In so many ways third-round right end Jordan Willis is the textbook draft pick in the Duke Tobin-Marvin Lewis Era. And Willis truly is a Marv-Paul Brown-guy who prefers to act like he’s been there before.

    Start this reunion tour for the Bengals offense on Tuesday’s first practice of the spring with a fast stop. And it’s got to be fast because we’re talking about Cody Core, the sophomore wide receiver who just very well might be one of the next big things in Bengaldom.
