Patriots FB Heath Evans is holding a charity softball game tonight at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Florida, with proceeds benefiting the Heath Evans Foundation, which is dedicated to fostering hope and healing in the lives of children and families affected by sexual abuse.
As part of the build-up to the event, Evans hosted a golf tournament today at the Breakers, and it included two special guests -- owner Robert Kraft and his wife Myra.
"We always extend an invitation to him for what we're doing, because he has a home in the area," Evans explained today. "He's been highly supportive of our foundation through Kraft Sports Productions since he’s grown aware of the cause. We’ve had his blessing. Like any other year, he had an invitation and this year, he was able to take advantage of it."
Evans put Kraft and his wife Myra in a pairing with one of his top donors, Byron Thomas. Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork rounded out the foursome.
Evans was impressed with what he saw from the Krafts.
"Matter of fact, they're both pretty good golfers," he said.
In addition to the Krafts and Wilfork, others from the Patriots at the golf tournament included Adalius Thomas, Jabar Gaffney, Randy Moss, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
