NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker is hosting a private dinner and signing party Monday to benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Walker has been working with MADD in honor of his uncle and aunt, Alice and Bryan Young Sr., who were killed in what police called a DUI-related wreck after the Super Bowl in February. Police says the Youngs had stopped on the side of Interstate 10 just west of New Orleans when their car was hit from behind by another vehicle, causing both cars to burst into flames.

Since that incident, Walker has spoken at the NFL rookie symposium and at other events about the dangers of drinking and driving. He also was on hand for the signing of a Tennessee law requiring ignition locks for convicted drunk drivers.
