CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

More than 400 women learned about football from the pros at Paul Brown Stadium on Thursday night.

The Football 101 fundraising event for the Marvin Lewis Community Fund gives participants a behind-the-scenes look at the stadium and the Bengals' weekly preparations for NFL games.

The women took the field after dinner and bidding on silent auction items. Participants were joined by Coach Marvin Lewis, assistant coaches and players for the event which included offensive drills, defensive drills, chalk talk and classroom stations for women to learn about football plays and get hands-on practice.

A local breast cancer survivor was honored at the event by the Marvin Lewis Community Fund with the annual Pink Football Award presented by Oxford Physical Therapy.
