In another move to assist in the lives of the children Darrent Williams left behind, Troy Asmus, Williams' agent announced he will be auctioning off the Super Bowl tickets and the room Williams had booked at a posh Miami Beach resort, with proceeds benefitting the kids --
From the Denver Post --
Fans will get a chance to experience the Super Bowl the way Darrent Williams was planning.
The Super Bowl tickets owned by Williams and five nights at a luxurious Miami Beach resort Williams was planning to stay in while in Miami are being auctioned on eBay. All profits of the auction will go directly to the Darrent Williams Children's Fund set up by the Broncos.
Williams, 24, was shot and killed in the early hours of Jan. 1 near downtown Denver, a victim of an unsolved drive-by shooting. Williams had two children: Darius, 7, and Jaelyn, 4.
"This is another avenue to help the kids as they go forward," said Troy Asmus, one of Williams' agents.
Asmus received approval from the NFL, the NFL Players Association and the Broncos to auction the tickets. Williams had a stay booked at the Fontainebleau Resort at Miami Beach from Jan. 31 to Feb. 5. Bids will be available through Sunday night. The approximate costs for the tickets and lodging are close to $3,500. The hope is to double that total, at the least, during the auction to help the children.
