Dallas native son Drew Brees is a guy every mother would love to have her kid bring home for supper. Instead, the Retina Foundation of the Southwest is bringing the New Orleans Saints Super Bowl-winning quarterback to lunch on Wednesday, March 4, for the 2020 Visionary Luncheon fundraiser.
Set to settle down with Shelley Slater for a chat onstage at the Omni Dallas Hotel, Drew is well-known for his down-to-earth attitude and tales of joining the Saints in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Event Co-Chairs Nancy and Stephen Rogers have arranged to have the entire Nancy and Herbert Hunt family serve as honorary co-chairs. No surprise, given the challenge that Hunt family members have faced regarding age-related macular degeneration. In addition to having about 60% of its patients being infants and children affected by a pediatric eye condition, the Retina Foundation is “an international leader in research and performs groundbreaking clinical trials for patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD).”
Another luncheon highlight will be the presentation of the Visionary Award to longtime supporters of the Foundation Helen K. and Robert G. McGraw.
Tickets are available here!
