Jessie James Decker and Eric Decker Host Casino Night to Benefit Veterans
Power couple Jessie James Decker, country singer, and Eric Decker, NFL star, are already utilizing their unique position in life to make a difference in the world with the Eric & Jessie Decker Foundation (EJDF), which strives to improve the lives of veterans and U.S. military service members.
To benefit the foundation, the Deckers have announced their first annual 'On Deck with the Deckers’ casino night, which will take place June 16 at the Rosewall in Nashville, Tenn.
The event will feature all the classic casino night table games as well as appearances from celebrity guests like Jana Kramer, Chuck Wicks, Joe Don of Rascal Flatts, Mike Fisher of the Nashville Predators, RaeLynn and more. Raffle prizes will include vacations and even VIP sports experiences. All proceeds will benefit EJDF.
The couple started the organization in 2013 and established its primary program, Decker’s Dogs, which helps fund the rescue, care and training of service dogs for military veterans returning home with disabilities.
“(Jessie and I) really wanted to give back to our veterans, but give back in a unique way,” Decker told About.com. “There’s so many good programs out there, but this one was very unique. These dogs can give veterans an opportunity to live a normal life again.”
James released her second album, an EP called Comin’ Home, in 2014, and it peaked at No. 5 on the U.S. Country charts. She and her husband currently star on a reality show on E! titled Eric & Jessie: Game On.
