Here is a link to the original story on the team's website.
The moment you realize your life is going to go in a different direction, and that everything you’ve worked for, and how you’ve always defined yourself, is changing.
That’s the moment six local athletes will share at the next At the Table with The Greenville News event March 10 at Fluor Field. The event in partnership with The Greenville Drive is part of The Greenville News’ culinary storytelling series, which marries illuminating personal stories and creative cuisine.
The six athletes will tell stories of passion, loss, dedication and resolve, and of the day they decided to essentially break up with their pro career.
Participating storytellers are:
- Bretton Cameron, who retired from the Greenville Swamp Rabbits hockey team
- Blakely Mattern, soccer player and J.L. Mann High graduate
- John Harkes, coach of the Greenville Triumph and former USMNT soccer player
- Levon Kirkland, former Pittsburgh Steeler and Clemson graduate
- MarieAnn “Mo” Newman, former professional bodybuilder and current bodybuilding judge
- Madison Younginer, a Mauldin High grad who pitched for the Atlanta Braves
Wilberto Sauceda, executive chef at Fluor Field will put his skills to the test to create a small plates menu inspired by each of the athletes.
The Greenville Drive is the venue sponsor for this event, and money raised will go to benefit the Greenville YMCA.
Tickets are $50 and include six dishes and an evening of stories you’ve never heard. The event is 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 10 at the Champions Club located at Fluor Field. Tickets are available here
