Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Greg Olsen Join Forces to Give a Winning Fan the Weekend of their Lifetime

NASCAR’s #88 driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Carolina Panthers #88 tight end Greg Olsen – together with presenting sponsor New Era – have teamed up to raise money for the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. Now in its third year, the fundraiser is appropriately dubbed “Weekend with the 88s,” and offers one lucky winner and their guest an unprecedented experience in sports spectating.

“Greg is a standup guy,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “What he does on the field is incredible, and the work he does off the field to raise money and awareness for Levine Children’s Hospital makes him that much more impressive. We have enjoyed being able to team up with him and his foundation for the past few years. This year, having the race in Charlotte on Saturday night and the Panthers playing on Monday Night Football will be a very unique experience for the winner.”
