- Dancing with the Stars
Whether it's Lambeau's Frozen Tundra or the dance floor of Dancing With the Stars. It's always a Family Affair in the Driver Household.
Donald and his wife Betina met while attending Alcorn State. "He would always let me know how much he enjoyed being with me and what he saw for our future," Betina says. "He was just really, really sweet." In 2001, the couple started the Donald Driver Foundation, with "Family" as a main focus the foundation strives to help the homeless find places to live and to give them tools and recourses for improving their lives.
Today, Betina Driver serves as a member of the Packers Women's Association that participates in a great deal of fundraising projects for the Green Bay Community. Betina is involved in a number of charitable events throughout the states of Wisconsin, Texas and Mississippi.
Donald and Betina have three children: Cristian (9), Christina (7) and Charity (1). It was Donald's children that inspired him to write his three children's books Quickie Makes the Team, Quickie Handles a Loss and Quickie Goes to the Big Game. No matter what event or project Donald is working on, the Driver family can be found by his side. In the spring of 2012 Donald joined the season 14 cast of Dancing With the Stars.
Donald and Betina along with their three kids packed up and relocated to Los Angeles for three months. Donald's family instantly stole the spotlight as they were featured each week cheering on their Dad. "I'm truly blessed to have my family by my side," Donald said. "I don't think I would be doing as well as I am if they weren't out here. It's been a fun, once in a lifetime experience for all of us." Donald's family joined him on stage during the season finale to raise the Dancing With the Stars Mirror Ball Trophy.
Betina and Cristian are annual participants in Donald's Charity Softball Game where Cristian can be found signing dozens of autographs for fans attending the game. The Driver family also attends Goodwill's annual "Retro Rendezvous" Fashion Show where Betina Driver has served as the event's Honorary Chair.
