Hubbard to be featured at Raider draft event
Former Oakland Raiders running back Marv Hubbard will be featured at the Carson City Raiders Booster Club NFL Draft Day party.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Q’s Restaurant, 230 Fairview Drive.
Hubbard, a graduate of Colgate University in New York, played for the Raiders from 1969-75. During the draft, Hubbard will sign autographs (up to two for free), pose for photos and regale the crowd with stories of his years with the team. There will also be drawings throughout the day.
The event is open to the public. Food and refreshment are available in the main dining area of the restaurant.
Membership to the club is open to all football fans. Applications will be available.
The club holds several fundraisers throughout the year. The biggest event is its annual picnic and membership drive in July held at Washoe Lake State Park, which includes the “Christmas Commitment” fundraiser.
Christmas Commitment is an event that includes a live auction, drawing, trivia and more to raise funds to “adopt” homebound senior citizens at Christmastime, through an arrangement with the Carson City Senior Citizens Center.
The NFL Draft begins at noon and the Raiders are fourth on the clock. In revised rules, each team now has eight minutes to make its selection.
Hubbard will offer insight as to what the team may need to improve its record this year and how top draft picks may influence on how the team will pick.
