Cleveland Browns safety T.J. Ward showed off his charitable side at the end of last week when he held a charity benefit at the Cleveland House of Blues. The event was called the “Cleveland Cares Celebrity Fundraiser” and the purpose was to raise money for the Cleveland Courage Fund to benefit Cleveland kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight.

Ward was joined at the event by Joe Haden, Craig Robertson and Johnson Bademosi, who served as celebrity bartenders for the event.

It is great to see the Browns players coming together for a good cause that benefits members of the community. These are the types of stories that we don’t always get to hear about, but it is refreshing to see professional athletes using their platform for the right reasons.

Kudos to Ward for helping to organize the event and making it all come together. I am sure that all of the victims and their families appreciate what the Browns did to show their support, so hats off to everyone that was involved.
