Lindner Center of HOPE Super Bowl Event Proceeds to Fund Financial Assistance for Mental Health Services for First Responders

Touchdown for HOPE Scheduled for Sunday, February 2, 2020

 Mason, OH –The eleventh annual Touchdown for HOPE Super Bowl Sunday event will take place Sunday, February 2, 2020, starting with tailgating at 5:00 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 fund a mental health services financial assistance program at Lindner Center of HOPE, benefitting our community’s first responders.

Community first responders (brave individuals who have specialized life-saving training) are among the first to arrive and provide assistance at the scene of an emergency, such as an accident, natural disaster, or terrorist attack.  These incidents are unfortunately all too frequent.  Fire fighters, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, law enforcement officials and other first responders experience incredible stress, while witnessing tragedies on a nearly unimaginable basis. When these heroes encounter traumatic experiences such as these, it often leaves them feeling as if no one else could possibly understand what they are going through besides their peers. They often don’t turn to experts to help them deal with mental health issues.

Sponsorship support and ticket sales will provide education and financial assistance to our first responders who are always ready to help our friends and neighbors in the toughest of times.

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 $85. Tickets purchased on or before January 15, will receive a discount. Reservations include free parking in Central Riverfront Garage and Cincinnati favorites such as LaRosa’s pizza, Skyline Chili, Montgomery Inn ribs and UDF ice cream food and much more.

Location: Great American Ballpark, Champions Club, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way.
