8 IMPACT REPORT 2020 Eagles Autism Foundation eaglesautismfoundation.org
Friday Night Kickoff Party
We launched this year’s Eagles Autism Challenge
weekend at Lincoln Financial Field with a Kick-Off Party
Friday night where participants were welcomed to pick
up their packets and begin the event’s celebration.
During the dinner and ceremony, attendees were able
to hear from Jeffrey Lurie why autism is an important
issue to him and to the Eagles organization. In addition,
attendees heard welcoming words from Eagles’ President
Don Smolenski, Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro, Eagles
Autism Challenge Executive Director Ryan Hammond
and others. The Kick-Off event included dinner, music,
appearances by Eagles players, cheerleaders, coaches,
alumni, mascot SWOOP and the Lombardi Trophy from
the 2018 Super Bowl Championship win. The event set
a tone of excitement for the main events to follow.
