'Reggie Wedge': Jewelry benefits charities (Jan. 20, 1997)

Nobody ever called Green Bay Packer veteran defensive lineman Reggie White a "cheese wedge," but now they've gone and named jewelry after him that's called the "Reggie Wedge" and it looks like a piece of cheese.
Two charitable groups are benefiting from the sale of the jewelry, according to Bob Landsee, a former University of Wisconsin football player and teammate of White's while they were with the Philadelphia Eagles.

One group is White's Urban Hope Foundation, an organization set up to help people by providing educational programs and small business loans. It also aids troubled youth. The other group is the National Football League Alumni "Caring for Kids" program.

In Milwaukee and Green Bay, the NFL Alumni will donate money to the Milwaukee Boys and Girls Clubs. In Madison, proceeds will go to Children's Hospital and to the Boy Scouts.

Each "Reggie Wedge" comes with White's initials on the back and a personalized "Thank you" letter from the 11-time Pro Bowl honoree. The gold jewelry costs $49.95, and is available as a lapel pin, a pendant, key ring or charm.

The "Reggie Wedge can be purchased by calling toll free 1-888-REG-WEDGE (734-9334). Information about it is also on the Internet athttp://www.surfmadison.com/reggie-wedge

Landsee, an executive board member of the NFL Alumni, has been promoting the "Reggie Wedge."

"We were teammates for four seasons for the Eagles," Landsee said. "I remember my rookie year in 1986. I showed up and the first day they threw me into the fire. I broke my leg on the first play."

While sitting on a bench with a cast on his leg, Landsee recalled feeling dejected. "Along comes this guy, and he sees my sad face, and he asks me if I want to go to a movie," he said, "and it was Reggie. And we have been good friends ever since."
