“With the Big Game right around the corner, this is a great opportunity to give our guests a chance to meet football royalty,” said Prairie Meadows Promotions Manager Kayla DeBruin. “It’s not every day one gets to meet a legendary football player in real time. This is the first event of its kind here at Prairie Meadows, and everyone is looking forward to it.”
