Former Eagles’ Broadcaster and NFL Player to Keynote Holy Family Radio’s Annual Dinner

Former Eagles’ Broadcaster and NFL Player to Keynote Holy Family Radio’s Annual DinnerHoly Family Radio AM720, will present their annual benefit dinner on Friday, April 21, at the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel. Kevin Reilly will be the keynote speaker. Reilly is an acclaimed keynote speaker, author, former broadcaster for Philadelphia Eagles Network, and former professional football player. He has motivated thousands with his journey of overcoming illness and unbelievable obstacles.

Drafted by the Miami Dolphins in 1973, Reilly played for the Eagles, where he captained the special teams, and the New England Patriots. In 1976, he was diagnosed with a rare tumor that led to the amputation of his left arm, ending his lifelong dream of playing in the NFL.

Reilly underwent an intense radical surgery to remove his left arm, shoulder and five ribs. The procedure altered his body and life forever, forcing him to end his professional football career and look at a new future, one with obstacles he never could have imagined.

Through perseverance and strength, Reilly achieved accomplishments many thought impossible, seeing success in the corporate world, broadcasting, and reaching thousands with his inspirational message.

Joe Nebistinsky, Station Manager, stated, “We are extremely honored to have Kevin Reilly as our keynote speaker this year. We are also excited to be returning to the Sheraton Harrisburg-Hershey Hotel for this year’s dinner. “The proceeds from this annual event contribute to the continued success of Holy Family Radio.”
