OFA’s (Oregon Football Alumni) VS MTV’s ‘The Buried Life’ in Charity Football on August 6 at Tigard High School!
The Oregon Football Association (OFA) is partnering with MTV’s “The Buried Life” to provide a free youth football camp and charity flag football game August 6th at Tigard High School, brought to you by Shady Peeps.
The OFA camp is for 3rd through 6th graders and will happen at 1 pm before the charity football game, which will include Oregon Football alumni and the cast of MTV’s “The Buried Life.”
University of Oregon football alumni Anthony Trucks, JD Nelson, Walter Thurmond III, TJ Ward, Jordan Kent, Justin Wilcox, Brian Butters, Jeff Maehl, and OFA Founders Dennis Dixon, Ryan DePalo, Brent Haberly, Garren Strong, and Jaison Williams will be coaching during the camp and playing the in the charity football game with members of MTV’s “The Buried Life.”
The event idea began when OFA dared the cast of MTV’s “The Buried Life” to play them in a flag football game last year, and is now a fundraiser for the non-profit company, while also fulfilling one of the bucket list items for the TV show.
OFA is devoted to helping young student athletes understand the importance of hard work, giving back to their communities, and being a part of something bigger than themselves. OFA works with each student athlete to develop personalized Community Service Action Plans that instill an importance in civic responsibility at a young age. Community Service Action Plans are projects that campers come up with to help better their communities, and OFA helps them to achieve these goals.
There is a suggested donation of $10 and a canned food item for the Oregon Food Bank to gain entrance to the charity football game. All the proceeds from the event and donations go directly back to the kids that OFA is trying to help.

The only thing better this summer than reserving a room or suite at the Grand Hotel is saving money on a unique Oregon adventure with a Grand Hotel package. Packages combine our luxurious guest rooms and suites with some of the best that the Bridgeport, Tigard and Tualatin areas have to offer.
We are very excited to introduce our new Up, Up, and Away! package this summer. We partnered with Pacific Peaks Balloons to offer guests a breath-taking hot air balloon adventure through October 2011 (weather permitting).
