Charlotte Jones Anderson To Lead NCAA Final Four Events in 2014

What an exciting couple of months it has been for our dear friend Charlotte Jones Anderson. Last month, we reported that Charlotte was appointed as Chairwoman of the Board for the NFL Foundation. Anderson also serves as Chair of The Salvation Army's National Advisory Board.

It was announced yesterday that Charlotte Jones Anderson has another new title. She has been elected Chair of the North Texas Local Organizing Committee (LOC), the group responsible for hosting the 2014 NCAA Men’s Final Four Championship at Cowboys Stadium from April 6-8, 2014. 
"Charlotte is a natural to lead this effort," said Rick Baker, President & CEO of the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic. "Five years ago she led the bid process to bring this event to Cowboys Stadium."

In addition to the tournament, the NCAA will host an event similar to the NFL Experience, providing interactive areas for children, live concerts and other entertainment.

The LOC’s Board of Directors includes Anderson; Baker; George Bayoud, President of Bayoud & Company, Inc.; Rolando Blackman, former Dallas Mavericks great; Bob Bowlsby, Commissioner of the Big 12 Conference; Jay Burress, President/CEO of the Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau; Hinojosa; Philip Jones, CEO of the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau; Nancy Lieberman, member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame; Gina Puente, CEO and Co-Founder of Puente Enterprises, Inc.; Terdema Ussery, President and CEO of the Dallas Mavericks; John Stankey, Senior Vice President, AT&T; Kathy Saunders, VP and General Manager of KDFW FOX 4; Alan White, Chairman and CEO of PlainsCapital Bank; Frank Windegger, former TCU Athletic Director.

Prior to the 2014 Final Four, Cowboys Stadium will also host the 2013 NCAA Men’s Basketball South Regional during the “Sweet 16” on March 29 and the “Elite 8” on March 31. Tickets to the regional matchups are now on sale through Ticketmaster online at ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745-3000.
