Spokespeople For Former Dallas Cowboy Refusing To Answer Questions About Smith’s Role In Unmasked, Unvaccinated Fundraiser In Boca Raton.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Spokespeople for football great Emmitt Smith remained silent Tuesday amidst requests for comment from BocaNewsNow.com regarding Smith’s participation in an unmasked, unvaccinated event in Boca Raton.
The “Go Pink” luncheon, sponsored by the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation, is set for later this month. It is a fundraiser for the foundation that reports more than $300M in the bank, according to recent tax records obtained by BocaNewsNow.com.
At issue: why Smith is taking part in an indoor event that may end up sickening — or potentially killing — women being treated for Breast Cancer.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who died Monday from COVID-19, was also afflicted with cancer. Medical experts, including the CDC, say that those fighting cancer have an increased susceptibility to COVID-19.
The event is set for “The Boca Raton,” the new name for the Boca Resort. Spokeswoman Sara Green-Hill continues to refuse to comment on the hotel’s COVID protocols and policies, and whether it will institute rules and regulations for the Go Pink event.
Ironically, Boca Raton Regional Hospital is promoting the event, even though hundreds of area residents died in the hospital from COVID-19.
Emmitt Smith charges between $50,000 and $100,000 as a speaker’s fee, according to the agency that represents him. No one from “All American Speakers” or sports agency “Octagon” responded to requests for comment concerning Smith’s involvement with the event.
