Andy Dalton and his wife Jordan have been giving back to the Cincinnati community since Dalton was drafted by the Bengals. Some of their charitable efforts include Andy & Jordan’s Hub, which provides several forms of entertainment for patients and their families during hospital visits. They also run a Date Night where parents of terminally ill children can spend the night having an all-expenses-paid private dinner while their children are treated to a event complete with face painting, video games and even an ice cream bar. They also have created a Pass It Forward Fund.

“This is a big area that our foundation helps,” Dalton told Geoff Hobson of “The Pass It On Fund provides financial aid where insurance doesn’t cover payments of treatment. We’ve had a lot of success with it and have been able to help a lot of people.”

It is a great cause, and the Daltons are holding an event on Friday to raise money for the fund and this element of their charity. They are holding the inaugural Night to Pass It On, which is an event that will have auctions, a cocktail hour and awards for families who have received a Pass It On grant. People who attend the event will also be able to meet with the Daltons as well as other Bengals players. There will also be a DJ, gaming and a dessert bar.

“We hope the event brings awareness to the foundation and awareness to why we do what we do,” Dalton said. “We started off the year with a big chunk of money from Buffalo and we want to continue the momentum and raise a lot of money so that we can help as many families as we can in the community.”

You’ll remember Buffalo fans flooded the Dalton foundation with donations after Dalton helped beat the Ravens in dramatic fashion with a last second touchdown in Week 17 of the 2017 season. The Ravens’ loss ended the Bills’ 17 year playoff drought. Obviously, the money went to a fantastic cause, but the Daltons are smart to keep creating fun and creative ways to bring in money to keep helping more families.

The Night to Pass It On starts tonight at 6:30 at Cincinnati Music Hall and tickets can be purchased at There’s also an after party, which is a cheaper way to contribute and participate in the event.
