The 2018 Flowserve Dallas Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon is Wednesday, August 29, at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This an annual tradition that signals the start of the Cowboys’ football season and benefits the Ed Block Courage House at Happy Hill Farm. Dallas Cowboys players, coaches, former football legends and numerous corporate sponsors will be present to support this philanthropic celebration, with all proceeds benefitting the local school dedicated to helping at-risk children.
Flowserve has sponsored the event every year since 2006 and is committed to supporting Happy Hill Farm’s mission of providing a second chance to children who are experiencing family, academic or behavioral difficulties. Support of this fundraising event is part of Flowserve’s cultural and community fabric and reflects a core company value to give back to the communities where Flowserve associates live and work.
Happy Hill Farm is located in Granbury, Texas, and provides high-potential/low-opportunity boys and girls from around the world a home away from home, along with a world-class, character-building education and life-changing experiences. The mission is to train and educate compassionate young adults and put them on the path to becoming future leaders with a desire to change the world for good. With a majority of the boarding students on scholarship, donations from the private sector are more important than ever.
The August 29 event, hosted by the NFL Alumni Association, will provide media, friends and fans with a close-up look at the Cowboys as they head into the 2018-2019 season. Brad Sham, long-time voice of Cowboys Radio, will emcee the event. Several awards will be given, including the 2018 MVP Awards for Offense and Defense; the Tom Landry Legend Award, given to a former Cowboys player; and the Ed Block Courage Award, given to a player who has sustained a career-threatening injury and is again playing at full strength.
