We lost our beloved namesake of this coveted award on April 16, 2013 however, his unparalleled legacy will live on through this prestigious event.

Archie Manning

"The event Cheryl produced in my honor is a night I will never forget.  Receiving an award in the name of the Late Pat Summerall is something I will always cherish.  The event encompassed highlights of my life and career from College until now.  Her personal touch is what makes this event so special. She brought together my entire family, close friends and colleagues all in the same room – something that is very rare in these days. The fact that the dinner raised close to a half million dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is something I am very proud of".

"The Legends for Charity event held annually at the Super Bowl has become one of the highlights of the week.  This is one of the events that dramatically benefits the local community, and last year's recipient reported that it contributed the largest amount of money ever raised for their charity.  Working a year out, Cheryl has successfully managed all aspects of this event, and continues to find ways to improve and enhance this popular event. It is my honor to be on the Honorary Committee."

"Having a wife with 20-plus years of event planning experience for major corporations I know a thing or two about what it takes to create memorable days or nights...and Cheryl has it all: an eye for detail, a deep abiding love for what she does, and a remarkable work ethic. She cares -- and it shows in every way that counts."
