MILWAUKEE – A former Packer wide receiver is back in the state. Donald Driver is in Milwaukee for the first ever Driven to Achieve Awards.
Friday was a preview day. The ceremony is set for Saturday at the Pfister Hotel.
Driver created the honor through his Donald Driver Foundation. It is meant to highlight charities and their accomplishments.
“I’ve learned I’ve impact a lot of people’s lives and if I can make people happy for the small time they’re with me, then I’ve done something special. Whatever pain and suffering they’ve been through for those couple of hours, I’ve made their dreams come true,” said Driver.
Driver will co-host the event.
Grammy Award winning singer Gladys Knight will also perform.
