Be An Angel
Dan Pastorini Charity has chosen Be An Angel as the beneficiary of the funds raised at the tournament. Proceeds will support the organization in its mission to improve the quality of life for special needs children by providing wheelchairs, hearing aids and other adaptive equipment and services.
The Be An Angel vision is to use all available means to help create a world where every special needs or profoundly deaf child has the opportunity to improve their personal quality of life, in order to facilitate that child’s ability to grow physically and emotionally to the full extent of their individual capacity.

Reading on Wheels
Dan Pastorini Charity also supports former Houston Oiler teammate, Vernon Perry, in his Jackson, Mississippi-based non-profit, Reading on Wheels. With the help of other former NFL players, Reading on Wheels’ efforts center around helping and encouraging lower-income children and families to achieve higher academic and behavioral standards by helping them meet needs and rewarding them with gifts that they couldn’t otherwise afford.
