William “The Refrigerator” Perry Sacks Las Vegas for Super Bowl

On Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 4, former Chicago Bear William “The Refrigerator” Perry and Carfax are bringing an all-out blitz on Las Vegas to raise funds for Opportunity Village. While the Bears are in Miami for Super Bowl XLI, Mr. Perry will be at the Las Vegas Convention Center with Carfax from 11:00am – 2pm. The event takes place in conjunction with the 90th Annual National Auto Dealers Association (NADA) Convention and Exposition.

“Opportunity Village contributes so much to this community and this is our way of giving something back to our gracious hosts – the city of Las Vegas,” said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. “And with the Bears in the Super Bowl, having The Fridge join us definitely raises the level of anticipation for this event. We hope it’s a sure touchdown.”

Opportunity Village serves people with intellectual disabilities by providing them with vocational training, community employment and social recreation services that make their lives more productive and interesting. Since its inception in 1954, Opportunity Village has grown to become Nevada’s largest private, not-for-profit community rehabilitation program, serving more than 3,000 people annually.

William “The Refrigerator” Perry was a key member of the 1985 Chicago Bears team that won Super Bowl XX and also helped record the infamous “Super Bowl Shuffle”. Mr. Perry will be available for interviews immediately following the fundraising event. To schedule an interview, please contact Christopher Basso at (703) 934-2664.
