Ayodele to host pool tournament Thursday
May 6, 2009 (Sun Sentinel delivered by Newstex ) --


Miami Dolphins linebacker Akin Ayodele loves the kids.

I usually don't post press releases but this one is for a good cause, and I'm pretty sure some Dolphins heavyweights will be in the house participating (It's always fun to watch how fiery of a competitor Joey Porter is. He hates to lose, no matter the game).

Ayodele will host a celebrity billiards event at Knight Time Billiards in Seminole Paradise at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel on Thurs., May 7, to benefit his charitable foundation.

The event, which is called ?Akin Ayodeles Celebrity Billiards Shootout, will team Dolphins stars of the past and present with teams of fans in a competitive pool tournament. The night will also feature a silent and live auction, and food and drinks will be served as well. The event begins at 7 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit ?Akins PATH, Ayodeles charitable foundation that funds and operates mentorship programs in South Florida. Akins P.A.T.H., which stands for ?Providing Acceptance, Teamwork and Hope, works closely with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Miami and provides unique experiences and opportunities for high-risk children.

"I am very excited to host my first major fundraiser here in South Florida," said Ayodele, who finished second of on the team in tackle last season. "I am thrilled to work with Big Brothers Big Sisters here in Miami and to get my own mentorship program off the ground, and this event will be a great way to kick that off. It is going to be lots of fun for me and my teammates to mix with the fans and compete in this pool tournament. Its going to be a very fun event."

Ayodele, who was once a nominee for the NFL's Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, was a starting linebacker on the Dolphins AFC East championship team in 2008. Table sponsorships and individual tickets are now on sale for ?Akin Ayodeles Celebrity Billiards Shootout, and can be purchased by phone by calling 615-535-3140.

More information and registration forms for the event can also be found online at this website, the official website of Akin Ayodele.
