Super Bowl Event to Raise Money To Help in the Fight Against Heroin

Touchdown for HOPE Scheduled for Sunday, February 5, 2017

Mason, OH –The eighth annual Touchdown for HOPE Super Bowl Sunday event will take place on February 5, 2017, starting with tailgating at 5:30 p.m. and with Super Bowl kick-off at 6:30 p.m., at the Great American Ballpark Champions Club.

Proceeds from Touchdown for HOPE will be used to subsidize the cost of treatment for those suffering from prescription opioid/heroin addiction at Lindner Center of HOPE’s HOPE Center North location.  Lindner Center of HOPE makes this call to action in response to the overdose crisis in the local community.  Many people suffer from not having the funds to pay for services for a daily treatment program, despite the fact that in most cases this is the most effective treatment option.  The inconsistency results in declining treatment effectiveness significantly over time.

Touchdown for HOPE is a classy and fun Super Bowl party with big screen televisions, plush seating, and signature Cincinnati food favorites and other upscale tailgate-style treats. All taking place in a sports fan’s dream location –overlooking the baseball field.  Tickets are $125 per guest, but a young professional’s ticket, for those 35 and under, is priced at $75. Tickets purchased prior to January 15, 2017 are discounted to $100 and $65 respectively. Reservations include free parking in Central Riverfront Garage and all food and beverages.

Originally conceived in 2010 by Scott Robertson, Carl Satterwhite, John Ryan, Francie Hiltz and Sue Lawrence, this annual event has consistently raised over $200,000 and continues to improve the lives of those suffering with mental illness and substance use disorders.
