The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Alumni Association (WRCAA) is hosting the first official reunion of former NFL cheerleaders at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center July 27-28, 2012. Patch reporter AnnMarie Baranik will be attending as a Buffalo Bills Alumni. The timing coincides with the 50th Anniversary of The Washington Redskins Cheerleaders.
The WRCAA is proud to host the inaugural reunion of former NFL cheerleaders, including teams past and present. More than 350 ladies and their guests, representing as many as 17 NFL teams, will descend on our Nation’s Capital for one summer weekend, kicking off with an evening “Meet and Greet” on July 27.
"We are honored and excited to host the first reunion of NFL Alumni cheerleaders. We look forward to rekindling old friendships and establishing new ones,” says Terri Lamb, WRCAA President.
On July 28, the ladies will embark on a VIP tour of FedEx Field and notable Washington, D.C. landmarks. That evening, the premier cheerleader alumni reunion dinner/dance will be held in the Cherry Blossom Ballroom of the Gaylord National Resort. Keynote speakers will include Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell; the First Lady of Virginia and WRC Alumna Maureen McDonnell; Larry Michael, Sr. VP, Washington Redskins; Redskins legend Mark Moseley, and Stephanie Jojokian, Director/Choreographer, Washington Redskins Cheerleaders. Current recording artists (formerly NFL cheerleaders) and the 2012-2013 Washington Redskins Cheerleaders will entertain guests with live performances.
Founded in 1984, the WRCAA was the first professional cheerleader alumni association in the NFL. Current membership totals more than 800 women throughout the United States and Japan, who carry out the mission of supporting local and national charities through volunteer efforts.
