Former Iowa Barnstomer quarterback Kurt Warner is returning to Iowa for the first time since joining the New York Giants. Warner’s First Things First Foundation will hold the “Hope for the Future” banquet on Friday, July 16, 2004 in Des Moines. Funds raised at the event will benefit the Iowa outreach of First Things First, which helps single mothers move into their first homes. The two-time NFL M-V-P was released by the St. Louis Rams on June first and then signed a two-year contract with the Giants.
