Posted Nov 14, 2012

The Browns have teamed up with WTAM to help benefit the United Way of Greater Cleveland.

The Cleveland Browns have teamed up with the other Cleveland sports teams and Clear Channel Radio for the annual WTAM Sports Auction to benefit the United Way of Greater Cleveland.

Through WTAM’s online auction, fans can bid on autographed memorabilia, as well as unique game experiences now through Nov. 16th at 1 p.m. ET.

Fans have an opportunity to bid on a Super Bowl trip for two, 10 tickets in a suite for the Browns’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Dec. 9, four pregame passes and four game tickets for the game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Dec. 16, or a training camp VIP package.

In addition to the experience packages, the Browns have donated the following autographed items: a football from one of the team’s 16 Pro Football Hall of Famers, as well as ones from quarterback Brandon Weeden and running back Trent Richardson, D’Qwell Jackson and Joshua Cribbs helmets, a Jabaal Sheard photograph with two Browns hurricane glasses and a gift basket, and a Phil Dawson hat and fan package.

The Browns and United Way of Greater Cleveland are committed to improving their community throughout the year. Earlier this season, the two organizations did so by building and dedicating a new playground at the Phillis Wheatley Association of Cleveland.

Since returning to the National Football League in 1999, the Browns have partnered with the United Way of Greater Cleveland every fall for the annual Hometown Huddle project where the two organizations combine their efforts to build playgrounds and safe recreational spaces for children around the City of Cleveland.

The Hometown Huddle is the United Way’s National NFL Day of Caring and through their partnership with the United Way of Greater Cleveland, the Browns have constructed 14 new playgrounds in Cleveland.
