On Tuesday, January 22, 2013, NFL Football Players and NFL Cheerleaders will be holding Youth Clinics for Hawai’i Island intermediate and high school students at Kealakehe High School from 3:00–5:30 p.m. and Wednesday, January 23, 2013, at Wong Stadium from 3:00–5:30 p.m. Players and cheerleaders will also visit a local school for an assembly before the clinics. The NFL Pro Bowl Youth Clinics, now in its 11th year, is focused on motivating our youth to realize their dreams and to maximize their potential.

In the past years, players and cheerleaders from the NFL teams have come to Hawai’i Island, to present our children with inspirational messages and positive skills training. The 2-hour clinic will feature a variety of hands-on skills and techniques for both boys and girls.

“Seeing the smiles, the excitement, and the joy on the faces of the kids – its quite an honor to be part of such a positive and inspirational event”, said Mayor Billy Kenoi, Pro Bowl ‘Ohana Committee Member. “I cannot thank the NFL, Nat Moore, the Pro Bowl ‘Ohana Committee, and our volunteers enough for making this event possible. Each year we involve more students on Hawai’i Island – we now get to involve over 700 of our youth Island wide. Our kids will remember this for the rest of their lives!”

All youth participants will also receive an NFL Pro Bowl t-shirt that will be autographed by each player and an NFL Pro Bowl sling backpack. The public and youth not signed up for the program are welcome to attend the event. Youth participants are selected by their respective school, however, every year there are open slots that need to be filled. Youth who are accompanied by a parent may be able to participate if there are any open slots prior to the beginning of the clinic on a first come, first served basis. For more information, please contact Betty at 961-8343 or Char at 961-8503.

NFL Pro Bowl Trophy, Cheerleaders, Autographs and a Block Party… The 2012 NFL Pro Bowl Strolls Into Wolfgang’s in Waikiki

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse by Wolfang Zwiener at the Royal Hawaiian Center in Waikiki is, once again, the official Pro Bowl 2012 Trophy Host from January 24-28, 2012.  Wolfgang’s Steakhouse was also the official home of the trophy last year, the Pro Bowl MVP trophy’s inaugural year.


The trophy will be featured at a press conference (for media, only) at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort & Spa on Tuesday, January 24th, then brought to Wolfgang’s Steakhouse at approximately 12:45 p.m. by Wolfgang and Peter Zwiener and General Manager Bill Nickerson, accompanied by the Pro Bowl Cheerleaders and mascot.  The public is invited to greet the trophy at this time.  Limited photo ops will be available with the cheerleaders, as well.

From January 24th through the Pro Bowl Block Party on January 28th* (*except 1/25 – see below), the Pro Bowl Trophy will be on display at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse during regular hours – 11 a.m.~10:30 p.m. daily, and the public is invited to take a photo with the trophy at no charge.

“We welcomed thousands of excited Pro Bowl fans who came in last year to take a photo with the trophy,” said Nickerson.  “And many of them also stayed for lunch, happy hour, and dinner with us!  This is really the only opportunity for fans to take a photo, up close and personal, with such an iconic trophy – it’s truly a unique experience!  I recommend coming earlier in the week – there were long lines and hours-long wait on Saturday night during the Pro Bowl Block Party.”

A summary of events is below.  Stay tuned for more announcements on cheerleader appearances at Wolfgang’s Steakhouse throughout Pro Bowl Week.
