70th Rochester Press-Radio Day of Champions Dinner
a Huge Success

At the annual Day of Champions Dinner on Wednesday, April 3, Patrick Mahomes showed that he is an MVP off the football field, too. His charisma, character and sincerity made the evening enjoyable and memorable for everyone in attendance, and helped us celebrate and raise much-needed money for our children's charities. Thank you Patrick! You are a true champion in football and in life!
