Former NFL players headed to McHenry

Between 30 and 40 former pro football players will be part of a fundraiser benefitting the Retired Professional Football Players of Chicago Scholarship Fund Wednesday night in McHenry.

The event will be held from 8-10 p.m. at Nicolino's Trackside and will include a meet and greet with former players. Among those scheduled to appear are Emery Moorehead, Rashied Davis, Jarrett Payton, Jerry Azumah and Matt Sinclair among others.

There is no charge to attend the event, but there is a $25 fee for photographs and autographs. The Retired Professional Football Players of Chicago provides scholarship funds for high school students that couldn't otherwise afford to attend college.

The non-profit organization also provides funds for needy youth football programs around Chicagoland.
