Rising Stars Luncheon 2019

skinny banner FINALFINAL

The After-School All-Stars North Texas Fourth Annual Rising Stars Luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at the Brook Hollow Golf Club.  This year, we have an exciting opportunity to host special guest, Drew Brees, the 2009 Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback for the New Orleans Saints. The luncheon will be chaired by Tara Conway and Bev Bowman, honoring our Board Chairman Ben Lange for his visionary leadership over the last three years.


Drew Brees is the 2009 Super Bowl MVP-winning quarterback for the New Orleans Saints. A native of Austin, TX, Brees attended Westlake High School and lettered in football, basketball, and baseball and as a senior in 1996 led his football team to a perfect 16-0 record and the 5A State Championship while garnering 5A Offensive Player of the Year honors. He attended Purdue University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Management from the prestigious Krannert School of Management while lettering in football from 1997-2000. A two-time Heisman finalist, Brees led the Boilermakers to a Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl appearance during the 2000 season. In that same year, he won the Maxwell Award as the nation’s top collegiate player as well as being named Academic All-American Player of the Year and was a recipient of the National Football Foundation’s post-graduate scholarship. In Brees’ five years with the San Diego Chargers and eleven years with the New Orleans Saints, he has been elected to 12 Pro Bowls while being named 2004 Comeback Player of the Year, 2006 All-Pro Team, 2006 Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, 2008 and 2011 NFL Offensive Player of the Year, and Super Bowl XLIV Champion and MVP. As much pride as Brees takes in his on-field performance, he takes even more pride in his community service endeavors. Drew and his wife, Brittany, established the Brees Dream Foundation in 2003 and since then have contributed over $33,000,000 to help improve the quality of life for cancer patients and provide care, education and opportunities for children and families in need.


We are excited to hear more about Brees’ experiences on and off the field that led him to his success today. Please join us for an incredible event supporting our All-Star students!
