I used to live in Baltimore - Last May, my friend Matt was killed in a DUI hit-and-run in Ocean City, MD. We weren't super close, but he was my best friend's cousin. Diehard Ravens fan. I'm close with the family and it was of course devastating for them.
This Friday, Joe Flacco, partnered with Dairy Queen, donated $25,000 to his Memorial Fund - for scholarship program at his old HS, and drunk driving awareness. It meant a whole lot to the family to spend an afternoon with their Super Bowl QB. It's just too bad Matt never got to meet the guy. I thought it shows good character - from what I gathered it seemed that he reached out to the fam after hearing about it - not the other way around.
Matt's nickname was "Cheese" because he was always smiling. Flacco and the fam wore "Cheese On!" shirts in his memory
