Alzheimer’s Association A.W.A.R.E. Luncheon Honoring Don Meredith & Benefiting the Alzheimer's Association Greater Dallas Chapter




All-American champion and Dallas Cowboys legend Don Meredith will be honored at the Alzheimer’s Association A.W.A.R.E. Luncheon Wednesday, April 28 at the Fairmont Hotel Dallas. Chaired by DeDe Willis and Bonnie Jones, the sold-out luncheon, A Tribute to Don Meredith: An American Champion, will honor Don for his many contributions to the championship history of sports in the Dallas area and his groundbreaking television commentary.

Phyllis George, former Miss America and one of the first female sports broadcasters, will emcee the luncheon. Longtime friend and broadcasting colleague Frank Gifford, along with Roger Staubach, Bob Lilly and Walt Garrison, will present the program.

The annual luncheon is organized by the Alzheimer’s Women’s Association for Resources and Education (A.W.A.R.E.), a support organization of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Dallas Chapter. The Chapter’s mission is dedicated to fighting Alzheimer’s through innovative programs, services, education, research and advocacy.

The Alzheimer's Association is the nation’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Their mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Their vision is a world without Alzheimer’s.
