Leaf, drafted number two overall behind Peyton Manning in the 1998 NFL Draft, did not fare as well as was expected during his professional career and was out of the league after just four seasons. After his playing days were finished, Leaf became addicted to opioids and his life spiraled out of control until he was eventually imprisoned for burglary, theft and drug charges. He has since gained recovery from his addiction and travels the country speaking to communities about his story. He has also started the Focused Intensity Foundation to help those who are willing but cannot afford to get the treatment they desire.

Tickets for Thursday night’s event are available for $50 per person or $500 tables that seat up to 10. To purchase, or for more information, call Cheryl Dale (800) 326-7444 or (509) 457-1831 ext 423.

Earlier this year, Leaf was a guest on the hit television show ‘Ellen” and told his story in a very candid, transparent and authentic voice.
