“Throughout my football career I have always tried to carry myself in a manner befitting a true professional, a manner that exemplifies the proud and prestigious legacy of not only the team but the city of Philadelphia, that is why it was imperative for me to align with an organization that shares these same ideals, for this I chose Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City,” said Donovan McNabb.  “I feel honored to have this opportunity to celebrate at Harrah’s Resorts’ The Pool After Dark beside my closest friends and family, as well as the other thousands of fans in attendance.  This will be a night to remember, and I can think of no better culmination of my 11 years in Philadelphia than to throw a party in a destination known for parties – Atlantic City.”
