The Do It For Durrett Foundation, which was started as a way to honor the way sports reporter Richard Durrett lived, has a totally radical event planned at the Cholula Porch at Globe Life Park.
The Do It for Durrett '80s Night event will feature performances by current members of the Texas Rangers, country music star Casey Donahew and plenty of other surprises that will make you remember the decade when MTV actually played music.
There will also be live and silent auctions as well as the auctioning off of a lucky few athletes for date nights. Everyone is encouraged to bust out their Ocean Pacific shorts, parachute pants and retro Air Jordans and wear their best '80s clothes to the event. There will be prizes for the best dressed as well as a DJ spinning music from the '80s.
The Do It For Durrett Foundation raises money for families impacted by sudden loss. This year’s event will benefit the family of Jason Dugger. Dugger, who knew Richard Durrett and worked with him at the Dallas Morning News, died suddenly last year at 41 and left behind a wife (Lauren) and two sons (Evan and Ryan).
