Excitement and anticipation are the best words to describe last Saturday’s morning in San Francisco. The always fabulous members of Off The Field Players’ Wives Association toured the Notes For Notes® Studio at the Don Fisher Clubhouse of Boys & Girls Club of San Francisco. Off the Field (OTF) is the national football player wives association comprised of talented and diverse wives of active and retired professional football players.
Notes for Notes (N4N) was thrilled a couple months earlier when OTF board members Ericka Lassiter and Romonda Jordan selected N4N as their Super Bowl community service organization. The Studio visit was the day before the Super Bowl, and it was the morning after OTF’s annual fund raising fashion show. Pre Super Bowl week is always a whirlwind of charitable activity for these powerhouse women.
On a personal level, I couldn’t wait to show off the N4N Studio, and especially the talent of the youth members. It was just last November that I myself toured the Detroit Notes For Notes Studio as an OTF member, and after that day I knew I had to become part of the Notes for Notes team and share this awesome program with my NFL wives’ friends.
The highlight of the day was when N4N youth artist Dell performed two original songs while OTF members crowded around. By song’s end, there were tears, smiles and hugs to go around. These women were genuinely surprised and impressed by Dell’s level of talent and passion. Then a few of the wives just couldn’t help themselves. Up to the microphone they marched in the Notes for Notes state of the art recording studio to lay down vocals on a new and improved version of the NFL theme song.
It was a productive and inspirational day. Notes for Notes is honored to have been chosen by OTF and very excited to work with their members throughout the country because “together we are stronger!”
