On July 14, 2009, Retired NFL Pro-Bowl Running Back, NBC News Correspondent, “Football Night in America” Analyst and Chairman of Tiki Ventures, LLC Tiki Barber hosted a Greet for Judy and Steve Stazel, a couple traveling from Englewood, Colorado. Volunteer Greeter Ruth Nordenbrook accompanied them on the Greet.
The event was part of a new initiative, Greeter for a Day, which matches New York celebrities, corporate leaders and politicians with global visitors to experience New York through the eyes of real New Yorkers.
Tiki welcomed the Englewoods and Ms. Nordenbrook at the NBC studios for a personal tour. They then continued on to Koreatown, located between Broadway and Fifth Avenue on 32nd Street, for lunch in one of Tiki’s favorite Korean restaurants.
In remembering the event, Ms. Nordenbrook was quoted as saying, “Tiki Barber is one of the kindest, smartest, socially concerned people I have ever met. It was a joy meeting him.”
