Black Tie International:
Coach Don Shula to be Honored by Tampa's Moffitt Cancer Center

Coach Don Shula

To Be Honored
For Leadership and Philanthropy
By Tampa’s
Moffitt Cancer Center

(South Beach Award Dinner to Take Place on Feb. 3)



 He is known for his dynamic coaching skills on the football field. Coach Don Shula led the Miami Dolphins in 1972 to the NFL’s first and only “Perfect Season,” including the Super Bowl, commanding the title “Winningest Coach,” an honor that none come close to. But off the field, Shula is known for his community leadership and giving heart. Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa is honoring him for that generous spirit at the Board of Advisors’ Leadership & Philanthropy Award Dinner on Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010, at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. The gala is expected to attract more than 500 of Shula’s longtime friends in the sports and entertainment industry for cocktails starting at 7 p.m., followed by dinner at 8 p.m., an award presentation, and live entertainment by the fabulous Marcia Mitchell Band

Moffitt established the Leadership & Philanthropy Award to recognize the extraordinary professional and civic accomplishments of a community leader. Shula is the first to receive the award.

"I am honored to be recognized by Moffitt Cancer Center,” says Hall of Fame Coach Don Shula. "Moffitt’s hard work and dedication to helping people, as well as its continued advancement in research and treatment of cancer is tremendous."

Family, friends and a host of supporters, including the honorable H. Lee Moffitt who will present the award, will help the host committee celebrate Shula’s accomplishments.

 “His dedication on and off the field has been an inspiration to many and has sparked Moffitt Cancer Center to bring together his family, friends and cancer warriors to say ‘thank you,’” said Sam Donaldson, ABC news veteran, and the evening’s host. Donaldson will be joined by Event Co-chairs Bob Griese, the quarterback of that fantastic 1972 Dolphins team, and his wife, Shay.

“Don has been a great mentor and a wonderful friend,” said Bob Griese, also a member of Moffitt’s Board of Advisors. “He has worked hard to find a cure for cancer through the Don Shula Foundation for breast cancer research and many lives have been made better for it. We consider it an honor to present this award to him.”

Silver Sponsorship are $10,000 and include dinner for 10, name recognition in the program booklet and name recognition in Moffitt publications; Gold Sponsorships are $15,000 and include Silver benefits and a half-page ad in the booklet; Platinum Sponsorships are $25,000 and include Gold benefits, verbal recognition during the event, recognition on event materials and advertising, and a full-page ad in the booklet; and the Presenting Sponsorship is $50,000 and includes dinner for 20 at two tables, a full-paged ad in the booklet with a personal message to Don Shula, name recognition on event materials and advertising, name recognition in Moffitt publications, color logo on the back of the event program, and an exclusive after-hours celebration with Shula. Patron tickets are $1,000 each and there is a menu of underwriting and advertising opportunities. Funds raised at the event will go to benefit research at Moffitt Cancer Center.
