Matt Light Celebrity fundraiser celebrates 10th year

Current and former New England Patriots players got together over the weekend for the 10th annual Matt Light Celebrity Shootout in Rhode Island.

Every year, players get together with celebrities to raise money for at-risk youth.

Patriots defensive end Rob Ninkovich and Olympic gold medalist Simon Shnapir attended the event, which included target shooting, wood carving and corn-hole.

The event raised nearly $800,000 for the Light Foundation, which helps at-risk youth learn life lessons and becomes leaders in their community.

“That’s what we preach through our foundation,” Light said. “It’s all about being REAL: responsible, ethical, accountable leaders.”
