About Legends for Charity



The annual Legends for Charity dinner benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will take place at the NFL Headquarters Hotel, the Grand Hyatt Regency New York, on January 30, 2014, during Super Bowl XLVIII weekend in New York. The event was created in 2005 and is produced by Ocean 2 Ocean Productions, a long-time St. Jude volunteer and donor.

Each year, the dinner presents The Pat Summerall Award to a person who has made a significant contribution in the sports field. The award was created in honor of the late beloved legendary broadcaster for his contributions to the NFL for more than 50 years. Past honorees include James Brown, Greg Gumbel, Jim Nantz, Chris Berman, Cris Collinsworth, The NFL ON FOX , Al Michaels and Archie Manning.

We are pleased to honor Michael Strahan as he becomes the ninth recipient of this coveted award.  This evening will provide guests a once in a lifetime experience. While we celebrate the life and career of one of a Super Bowl Champion, FOX NFL SUNDAY Analyst and co-host of LIVE with Kelly and Michael with video tributes and guest speakers, attendees will also be supporting the miracles performed every day at St. Jude.

 

About St. Jude
Since opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. 

The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children.

St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.
