2020 Visionary Luncheon

Drew Brees – Featured Speaker



Nancy and Herbert Hunt Family – Honorary Chairs

Nancy and Stephen Rogers – Luncheon Chairs

Drew Brees, Super Bowl-winning quarterback for the New Orleans Saints and Texas native, will be the featured speaker for the 2020 Visionary Luncheon benefiting the Retina Foundation of the Southwest on Wednesday, March 4, 2020. As much pride as Brees takes in his on-field performance as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, he takes even more pride in generously serving his community and beyond through the Brees Dream Foundation. Drew will draw on his two decades in the NFL to provide insights on leadership, both on and off the field, in a moderated conversation with Shelly Slater. He will captivate the audience with stories about being an MVP and the role that philanthropy plays in his life.

All funds will help advance the mission of the Retina Foundation of the Southwest to prevent vision loss and save sight through innovative research and treatment for age-related macular degeneration, pediatric eye conditions, and inherited eye diseases. For questions, please contact Vanessa Peterson at 214.363.3911, ext. 101 or
