Save the Date for Tailgate & Celebrate
Saturday, April 28, 2018 | 5-9pm
Join us in celebrating the completion of the Red Barn and kickoff of the GameChanger Athletics Initiative. This tailgating party with a high-end twist includes:
Special Guest Speaker: Tony Dungy, former NFL player and coach and current analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America
A former NFL defensive back, Dungy is one of only four men in NFL history to win a Super Bowl as both a player and head coach, joining Mike Ditka, Tom Flores and most recently Doug Pederson. In 2007, Dungy became the first African-American head coach to lead his team to a Super Bowl victory as the Indianapolis Colts defeated the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI. Before retiring from the NFL in 2008, he had successfully made the playoffs in his final 10 seasons as a head coach. In 2016, Dungy was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
