Pro Football Hall of Famer and All Stars Helping Kids Founder Ronnie Lott today announced that he will host the second annual Sports, Business and Philanthropy Luncheon on Tuesday, December 9 at The Sports Museum of America, beginning at 12:30 p.m.? At the event, former New York Giants star defensive lineman George Martin will receive the Bill Walsh Champion of Change Award for his many charitable endeavors and All Stars will announce a new partnership with current Giants star Justin Tuck to highlight his upcoming philanthropic efforts with disadvantaged children.
?All Stars Helping Kids has been making a difference on the West Coast for almost 20 years now and we?re proud to come back to New York for year two and take our message to a much larger national audience,? Lott said.? ?This year we honor a man who embodies all that the legendary Bill Walsh was about. In George Martin we see honesty, fair play, innovation, duty to community and hard work?and we are also pleased to salute Justin Tuck, a young athlete who is carrying those same values both on and off the field. Justin is already a champion on the field, and his work with kids is creating a legacy that will last well beyond his playing days.? It is a privilege and an honor to stand with both of them on December 9.?
Following the luncheon, All Stars will host a panel discussion entitled ?Creative Philanthropy in a Struggling Economy?.? The panel will feature representatives from a cross-section of industries who will discuss the importance of ?giving-back? during these difficult economic times and how they can pool their resources to improve the learning environment for children in low-income communities.?
