LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The 23rd Off the Field (OTF) NFL Wives Association annual charity fashion kicked off with a pink carpet at the Grand Canal Shoppes.

More than 50 spouses gathered to celebrate community football.

No matter what size, fashion is for everyone was the message. Current and former NFL wives showing off their glitz, and glam and strut down the runway at the Venetian Theatre all for a good cause.

It’s a sisterhood walking with purpose.

The organization OTF is a group helping empower NFL wives across the U.S.

Some of them hand in hand with their NFL husbands like actor Terry and Rebecca Crews, a breast cancer survivor.

“I think it’s so important to look into the needs of families and players when they’re done playing because that transition is challenging,” she said.

“It’s like there’s still greater things coming and you have to believe that,” Terry Crews said.

Other notables told 8 News Now they are just thankful for the women who show up.

“They’ve helped to teach me so much, so everything that you learn in this organization is unmatched,” Ashley Brown said.

Former NFL player Rashad Jennings’ baby boy made an appearance.

8 News Now asked him who he was rooting for, the 49ers or the Chiefs.

“The team in red,” he said.

The entire Venetian Theatre was jam-packed. A performance by SWV and Voltaire did not miss a beat. Of course, the fashion show wrapped up the night.

The money raised was for the Las Vegas non-profit the Biletnikoff Foundation.

“It draws us closer together, brings us commodities but also at the same time allows us to pour out to others,” Off the Field Co-founder Romonda Jordan said.

After the fashion show, people were still able to shop to continue supporting the Biletnikoff Foundation and the building of its new wellness center.
