When it comes to fashion, Joe Haden and James Conner know what they are doing, so it comes as no surprise the two will serve as co-captains for Rock Steelers Style 2019: Take the Stage, the team’s annual fashion show.
The duo, who if you follow on social media you already know this, have a knack for putting together some stylish looks and they will be among the players who will walk the runway on Friday, Oct. 4 at 6 p.m. at Stage AE.
“For sure this is fun,” said Conner. “Just to be one of the captains is pretty cool. You get a chance to show some style. Now I have to look in the closet and see what I have.”
Conner gave Haden props as the best dressed on the team, and Haden is excited to be able to show off that style for a great cause.
“I enjoy clothes. My wife does. My kids do,” said Haden. “I am excited about it. I love dressing. I love fashion. This is something that is right up my alley. And we are doing it for two great charities."
The fashion show is chaired by Art and Greta Rooney and Mike and Kiya Tomlin and features players and their families. Proceeds from the show benefit the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program and Cancer Caring Center.
In addition to the fashions, guests in attendance and those at home can bid on exclusive online auction items, including a Super Bowl LIV trip, which includes two tickets, airfare and three nights stay at a hotel; trip for two on the Legends of Pittsburgh Cruise; Alumni Weekend Package, and other exciting items.
