The Cordish Companies’ Live! Casino and Hotel Philadelphia has announced a partnership with Ron Jaworski, a Pro Bowl quarterback, NFL Player of the Year, and member of the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame.
The deal involves a series of appearances at the facility for special events, as well as opportunity to serve as a spokesperson for the gaming and entertainment destination. Jaworski will also collaborate with the venue on philanthropic and community service initiatives.
Passion and commitment to Philadelphia
“Since Live! opened earlier this year, I’ve continued to be impressed not only by the beautiful facility they’ve created, but by their passion and commitment to the city of Philadelphia,” said Jaworski.
“They take a family and community approach to everything they do, which matches my own values and commitments in business, so I’m thrilled to be part of the Live! team.”
One of Jaworski and Live!’s first collaboration chances will be the taping of TV and radio commercials for PlayLive.com, the company’s branded internet gaming operation in Pennsylvania.
Joe Billhimer, executive vice president of Cordish Gaming Group said: “Ron Jaworski is a Philadelphia legend, and we are honoured to officially welcome him as part of the Live! family.
“Jaws has been an active supporter of Live! Philadelphia since the very beginning, so we are excited to further our relationship with him through this partnership.”
With a multiplatform NFL commentator role that encompassed a variety of appearances, Jaworski has been coaching football fans on TV and radio after a 17-year stint as an NFL quarterback.
He is also dedicated to civic engagement and philanthropy, and has received multiple awards for his contributions to the community.
Jaworski also owns Business Clubs America, an exclusive business development firm, as well as RiverWinds Golf & Tennis Club, Valleybrook Country Club, Ramblewood Country Club, Blue Heron Pines Golf Club, Running Deer Golf Club, Downingtown Country Club (PA), and Honey Run Golf Club (York, PA).
