Coach Shula will announce his predictions for Super Bowl XLV, discuss personal experiences, stories, and highlights from past Super Bowl wins, and answer questions from the audience. Proceeds from the luncheon will benefit Fort Worth-based charity Lena Pope Home summer camp, a three week summer educational enrichment day camp.
Apart from the four-course meal, attendees will receive special gifts—including a signed photo of Coach Shula—and have the opportunity to meet and mingle with other football players and coaches. Several young clients from the Lena Pope Home’s Achievers flag football team will attend the luncheon. Only 150 tickets are available, 24 of which will include a private 30-minute reception with Coach Shula before the luncheon.
