That's why this group of women is so powerful; we all understand and we all support each other. - Holly Robinson Peete


OTF is excited to announce Holly Robinson Peete, as the 2022 Honorary Co-Chair for the 21st Annual Off The Field NFL Wives Association Super Bowl Charity Fashion Show.


Actress, author, talk show host, activist, and philanthropist, Holly has been touched by the entertainment industry almost all of her life. Her career as an actress dates back more than four decades and has led her to become a voice for her father, her son, and her community.


Holly’s successful television career places her as one of only a handful of actresses to star in four shows in syndication. She has starred in 13 movies for Hallmark Channel (The Christmas Doctor” & “Christmas In Evergreen” to name a few).


In 1997, Holly and her husband, former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete, formed the HollyRod Foundation, inspired by her father’s courageous battle with Parkinson’s disease, with the mission to help improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s. Then in 2000, inspired by their eldest son’s autism diagnosis, HollyRod Foundation’s mission expanded to provide support and resources to those affected by an autism diagnosis. Most recently the foundation opened RJ’s Place Vocational and Family Support Services Center in Los Angeles.


Through the HollyRod Foundation and her family’s personal experiences, Holly has become one of the most trusted advocates for consistent and reliable education, outreach, and support for both Parkinson’s and autism.


The latest announcement has been the new Flagship RJ’s Place located at 3150 North San Fernando Road in Los Angeles. The spacious facility is housed inside the Goodwill Enrichment Center. RJ’s Place features a sensory room, family study area, a spacious conference/classroom, consultation rooms. The reception area features a 10×5 foot tank specifically designed for individuals with sensory sensitivities. RJ’s Place Vocational Training and Parkinson’s Support Center is dedicated to providing free access to families and individuals living with Parkinson’s Disease or autism. We provide wrap-around services for the entire family which includes parents, siblings, and caregivers. Its main focus areas are vocational training and job placement. Health and wellness are core elements of our programs. We address health in a holistic way to incorporate mental, physical, nutritional, and emotional.

Her longevity and visibility in the entertainment community have led Holly to a successful career as a trusted brand ambassador/spokesperson for some of the country’s biggest corporate brands. Holly’s philanthropic efforts have earned her numerous awards and honors.


Holly’s most recent work is Our Christmas Journey - a Hallmark film released in December of 2021.
