PIR TO HONOR KURT WARNER IN CHARITY EVENT
Annual “Offspeed” event to recognize former Cardinals QB
Former NASCAR champion Dale Jarrett, Arizona Diamondbacks Cy Young Award-winning pitcher Brandon Webb and Phoenix International Raceway President Bryan R. Sperber will team up to host the annual “Offspeed” charitable fundraiser to help kick off PIR’s November NASCAR weekend on November 10. As part of the event, former Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner – who retired this year after five seasons with the Arizona Cardinals – will be honored for his community service.
"Offspeed" is set to take place at Frank and Albert’s at the Arizona Biltmore Resort, on Wednesday, November 10 at 7 p.m. The event will benefit “The Dale Jarrett Foundation” and Webb’s “K Foundation,” both of which are dedicated to helping children and families.
Warner, who led the St. Louis Rams to a Super Bowl championship in 1999, was well-known for his philanthropic efforts during his playing career and he continues to serve the community in retirement through his “First Things First Foundation.” Warner recently accepted the “Peyback Award” for his contributions to the game and society at Peyton Manning’s annual charity event.
“It’s not every day you can get a Daytona 500 winner, a Cy Young Award winner and a Super Bowl MVP together in the same room,” Sperber said. “The fact that they will be joining forces with me to help raise money for children’s charities makes this event even more special.”
Tickets for “Offspeed” are $250 each, and provide guests with the chance to spend an evening with Jarrett, Warner and Webb while enjoying food and drink, and an exclusive charity auction, all while contributing to two deserving charities. All proceeds benefit the aforementioned charitable foundations.
Presenting sponsorships for the event are also available, with packages starting at $10,000. Presenting sponsors will receive two tickets each to "Offspeed" and Sunday's Kobalt Tools 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, as well as a Sprint Cup Series garage tour and access to pre-race ceremonies. Sponsors will be invited to a meet-and-greet photo opportunity for two with Jarrett and Webb prior to "Offspeed" and will receive two authentic Brandon Webb jerseys.
Presenting sponsorships feature inclusion on all promotional materials, including press releases, electronic collateral, and auction materials.
Those interested in attending or sponsoring "Offspeed" are encouraged to contact Stacy Kutz of Phoenix International Raceway at (623) 463-5632 or email@example.com.
