Kedric Golston, DE, Washington Redskins
Washington Redskins players joined together with a Sterling restaurant to serve up free dinner to the community Monday night as an early gesture of holiday goodwill.
Linebackers Lorenzo Alexander and Rocky McIntosh, defensive end Kedric Golston, tight end Logan Paulsen, kicker Graham Gano and running back Roy Helu were among the Redskins serving up free pizza and soda to customers at Dons' Wood-Fired Pizza in Cascades.
The restaurant and its owner Waleed Zarou forged the partnership with the team several years ago after Zarou befriended Golston at a charity event. A former missionary, Zarou noted Golston's active role in raising funds for missions abroad and the shared passion gave birth to the annual free dinner at Dons'. In years past the dinner has been held on Christmas Eve, but since the Redskins have a game this Saturday, the event was moved up by a few days.
Zarou noted that the participating team members came on their own volition and were equally excited about taking time to serve members of the community. He said the annual event is a time both to receive and give. In addition to the free dinner, community members could contribute to African Missions in several donation jars located around the restaurant. Professional recording artists Amy Jo and Friends also performed during the event. From Leesburg2day
