New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister and defensive end Charles Grant are spending this weekend in Hattiesburg to promote their "Christmas Shopping Spree" charity.
The two fan favorites started the weekend off with an autograph signing at VFW Post 5397 on Market Street downtown Friday night. Nearly 150 locals came out to meet the players.
"Me and Deuce have the place rented out for the weekend," Grant said. "And we decided that instead of just doing our own thing and partying all weekend, we'd do something for the kids tonight, then we can do our thing tomorrow night."
Grant said that he and McAllister would match and double every dollar earned for the charity through the autograph signing. Full Story – Americanhttp://www.hattiesburgamerican.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080329/SPORTS/803290309
