What a Way to Watch the Super Bowl!

Super Bowl XLVII Event Raises Money for Harold C. Schott Eating Disorders Program at Lindner Center of HOPENEW-Touchdown-2013-webpage

Mason, OH –The fourth annual Touchdown for HOPE Super Bowl Sunday event will take place on February 3, 2013 at the Great American Ballpark Champions Club. Touchdown for HOPE is a classy, upscale Super Bowl party with big screen televisions, plush seating, signature Cincinnati food favorites, with a built-in tailgating party with live music, all in a sports fan’s dream location, with proceeds going to enhance mental health care in the community.

Originally conceived in 2010 by Scott Robertson, Carl Satterwaite and John Ryan, this annual event, with hosts Anthony and Dede Munoz, has consistently raised over $200,000 and continues to improve the lives of those suffering with mental illness.

“The study and treatment of eating disorders are extremely complex,” said Dr. Paul E. Keck, Jr., President & CEO of Lindner Center of HOPE. “It’s a devastating illness and in spite of the unprecedented growth of eating disorders in the past two decades, research continues to be under-funded, insurance coverage for treatment is inadequate, societal pressures to be thin remain rampant and obesity is an epidemic.”
