Broncos to Roast Trainer Steve “The Greek” Antonopulos in an Event to Benefit Dani’s Foundation

Broncos Trainer Steve Antonopulos will be honored at “My Big Greek Roast” on Saturday, March 14 at West Club Lounge of Invesco Field (1701 Mile High Stadium Circle, Denver). Starting at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction, the event will benefit Dani’s Foundation.

The event will feature a variety of Colorado sports personalities toasting and roasting Steve Antonopulos, nicknamed “The Greek,” who is in his thirty-third year as head trainer of the Denver Broncos.

“He is the best trainer in the business and each and every Bronco for the past three decades is indebted to him,” said event chairman and former Denver Bronco Jim Jensen. “We are organizing an event that will not only pay tribute to a great man, but hopefully will add some much-needed laughter to the Denver community.”

“My Big Greek Roast” will mirror infamous training camp dinners that are only privy to Broncos players and coaches.

“Recollections from Steve’s 33 years with the Broncos, as told by the players, coaches and media should make for an evening of bone-rattling fun,” said Jensen, who played for the Broncos during the 1970s.

Joining Jensen will be Fox 31 News Anchor Ron Zappolo and KOA personality Dave Logan, who will be acting as co-hosts. Current and former members of the Denver Broncos including Tyrone Braxton, Mark Cooper, Jay Cutler, Tom Davis, Rick Dennison, Buck Dilts, Ron Egloff, Steve Foley, Jack Gehrke, John Grant, Dale Hackbart, Mike Harden, Rich Karlis, Keith Kartz, Claudie Minor, Haven Moses, Dave Preston, Dave Studdard, Ralph Tamm, Billy Thompson, Billy Van Huesen and Gary Zimmerman will be lining up to congratulate Antonopulos. CBS 4 Sports Anchor Vic Lombardi will represent members of the Colorado media, and he will be joined by other notable personalities including the infamous “Barrel Man,” Miles the Mascot, and the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders.

“This is sure to be a wonderful event for all Denver Bronco fans and those pediatric cancer patients who are in need of hope,” explained Dani’s Foundation Founder and President Michele Ashby. “Join us for an evening of love and laughter in honor of this wonderful man and those children and young adults who are in need of a cure for Ewing’s Sarcoma and other pediatric cancers.”

Tickets are $200 per person. Included in the tax-deductible donation to Dani’s Foundation is admission to the cocktail party and silent auction, dinner, and the post-dinner roast.
