"Huddle Up For Healthy Hearts"
April 10, 2013
It's Kick Off Time! We are excited to announce The Heart Health Foundation's 2013 Dare to C.A.R.E. benefit will be held at the Naval Academy Stadium "N" Room in Annapolis, Maryland on Wednesday, April 10th, 2013 featuring NFL Hall of Fame Dallas Cowboy quarterback and U.S. Naval Academy graduate Roger Staubach with Super Bowl MVP Washington Redskin Quarterback and current head coach of the Grambling Tigers, Doug Williams! The Cowboys-Redskins rivalry reborn in Annapolis.
The evening will start with a VIP Tailgate reception at the top of the Stadium in the Flag Bridge Room to be followed by a cocktail buffet reception with lots of fun activities, a silent auction, raffle, lots of networking and publicity opportunities and of course rushing the two Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks.
Our dedicated committee and others are already making significant contribution of time, resources and financial commitments to make this benefit a success. But we need your support! The Heart Health Foundation and the Dare to C.A.R.E. program depends on the support of business leaders and individuals like you to ensure a successful fundraising event. As a sponsor, you will be highlighted in the program and during the evening. Your support would really have a tremendous impact.
If you have something that you can donate for our silent auction, that would be great! Items that do good are airline tickets, autographed sports items, fishing trips/pleasure trips on your boat, golf passes, jewelry, ladies hand bags, football/baseball tickets, restaurant gift cards, trips, hotel stays, a stay at your weekend home/condo.
More details will follow. For further information on this event, contact Elaine Gairy - 410-573-9483 or email@example.com
