Our hometown hero, Charlie Sanders is one of the most outstanding and giving individuals I have met. Charlie has spoken to many of our local non profits on what it takes to be a success! There is a reason Charlie is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and it is not just his God given talent. Charlie knew what it would take to be the best in his field and he committeed himself to the daily tasks to accomplich the one in a million. When asked he graciusley accepted all of our speaking engagements and simply put, he made the event what it was. Everyone, always gave him a standing ovation not just because of what Charlie did on the football field but more for who and what Charlie Sanders is, a loving and committed husband and father who is there every day for his children and a community leader.

Charlie Sanders is the real deal. He spoke to the Southeast Michigan chapter of NAIFA as a real down to earth super star that he is in this life. He believes in the young people that he touches through his foundation to help them get doors opened with good education, so they can make a difference in our world. He’s a real leader on or off the field of life, Thank you, Charlie for sharing your dream with us in Monroe.

Charlie mesmerized an audience of fathers, sons and football fans for an hour and a half. He was very effective in motivating youngsters to reach for success and was generous with his time by signing autographs and talking one-on-one with the kids. Fabulous program!”
