An Evening with Verne Lundquist



Join the Headliners Foundation as we honor Verne Lundquist, one of America’s most beloved sportscasters. Joining Verne will be special guest “JB” James Brown, host of CBS’ “The NFL Today” and Master of Ceremonies Ed Clements.

The evening will include a cocktail reception as well as an elegant seated dinner and storytelling from the sidelines by Verne and JB.

Proceeds from this inaugural event will fund creation of the Verne Lundquist Sports Media Institute, designed to provide training, online learning, grants, and scholarships to high school and college sports journalism students based on demonstrated interest and potential as well as financial need.

Seating is limited and tickets will be on sale until February 19th or until sold out. General seating tickets are $350.00 per person and VIP tickets, which include a private reception with Verne and JB, as well as photo opportunities, are $625.00 per person. We look forward to welcoming you for a memorable evening.


General Admission: $350.00

VIP: $625.00

A portion of each ticket sale will be considered a tax-deductible donation to the Headliners Foundation and a tax acknowledgment for the fair market value of the ticket purchase will be issued following the event.
