Former Husker Steve Warren started D.R.E.A.M Omaha in 2006, to help youth in the Omaha area with mentoring programs, scholarships and vehicle donations. The Missouri native was a star defensive lineman for Nebraska from 1996-1999, winning a national title along the way.Now he plays a much larger role in the lives of Omaha children. “It was my calling” said Warren at a Celebrity Home Run Derby contest at Sawyer Snell Softball Complex in Lincoln.
Several former Huskers came out for the event, including former assistant George Darlington, Keyuo Craver, and Lornell McPherson to name a few. Some took part in the Derby, but none could match Team USA’s Losson White’s 25 home runs. Several local celebrities and everyday Husker fans came out to donate to Warren’s D.R.E.A.M. Omaha Foundation.
Husker Army, which is the largest Husker group on facebook, helped organize Saturdays event. Matthew Malone, Husker Army’s founder, was pleased with the turnout. “We raised just over two thousand dollars today for Steve and DREAM Omaha.”
Steve Warren also puts on a bowling event every April with proceeds going to his charity. HuskerCorner.com will keep you updated as the event nears. Donations can be made at any time at https://secure.qgiv.com/for/drteam/.
