Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities is proud to announce the fourth annual Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational, presented by SoftLayer. The star-studded two-day event is highlighted this year by “Dancing with the Smiths,” a gala dinner on Friday, May 10, 2013, at the Omni Dallas Hotel. The festivities resume the following morning with an 18-hole celebrity golf tournament on Saturday, May 11, at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney.

Friday’s “Dancing with the Smiths” will include a live show and dinner that features friends of Emmitt’s from his two seasons on Dancing with the Stars.  Dancers provided by Studio 22, the Dallas-based dance studio where Emmitt trained, will also perform. The event will culminate with an auction and other entertainment. The evening kicks off with a red carpet entrance that will be televised live locally, for the second consecutive year, by FOX 4 television.
