Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife, Jordan, played host to their annual “Date Night” on Tuesday, where they entertained seriously ill and special-needs children to a night of fun while treating their parents to a private dinner.

“Date Night” is one of five signature programs of the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, which is dedicated to providing opportunities, support and resources to seriously ill and physically challenged children and their families in Greater Cincinnati.

Teaming with childcare partner Skidaddles, Andy and Jordan entertained the children with a visit from Newport Aquarium animals, a photo booth, gaming stations, balloon artists and a painting station while their parents enjoyed a meal at Orchids at Palm Court at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza.

“This program is always special for us,” Andy said. “JJ and I make it a priority to have our own date night as often as we can, and we know that’s not always possible for these couples. This allows parents to have a much-needed night out while having peace of mind as their kids are right upstairs hanging out with us.”

The Date Night program is funded by the foundation’s Celebrity Waiter Night, which this year will be held June 1. For more information on the event, visit
