Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife, Jordan, hosted parents of seriously ill and special needs children to a quiet, all-expense-paid private dinner at Orchids at Palm Court at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza on April 24.
While parents enjoyed a date night, Andy and Jordan entertained the children through various activities, including a visit from the Newport Aquarium, photo booth, gaming stations, balloon artists, a painting station and a kid-friendly dinner.
"This program is always special for us," shared Andy Dalton. "JJ and I make it a priority to have our own date night as often as we can, and we know that's not always possible for these couples. This allows parents to have a much-needed night out while having peace of mind as their kids are right upstairs hanging out with us and childcare partner, Skidaddles."
"Date Night" is one of five programs initiated by the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, which continues its mission of providing opportunities, support and resources to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in the Greater Cincinnati area. The programs are funded by signature events like the Andy & Jordan Dalton Foundation Celebrity Waiter Night. This year, Celebrity Waiter Night is becoming "A Night to Pass It On" at Music Hall on Friday, June 1. Learn more about this rejuvenated event at www.andydalton.org.
