New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress showed up at a charity fundraiser for the homeless at a New York City nightclub two weeks after accidentally shooting himself in the right thigh.
Burress attended Kevin Powell’s 8th Annual Holiday Party and Clothing Drive at the Madison nightclub around 8:45 p.m. on Friday with his wife, Tiffany, and son, Elijah, reports the Associated Press.
The suspended player refused to discuss the Nov. 29 shooting at the Latin Quarter nightclub that led to criminal possession of a weapon charges and his suspension for the rest of the regular season and the playoffs for conduct detrimental to the team.
“I’m just here to support this event, it’s a great event, and I thought it’d be a great chance to get my wife out, and my son out, and support such a great event where it helps kids, homeless kids,” Burress told WNBC-TV. “This is a wonderful thing for us to come out and be able to help people and we can lend a helping hand. I have a child, I have a son, I couldn’t imagine him being in that situation, so that’s why I brought him also.”
