The post-tournament luncheon and awards ceremony will provide opportunities for photos and autographs with the players.

A Level Playing Field Foundation came from the inspiration and experiences of founder Susan T. Spencer. Formerly a local radio show producer and host - Not Just Sports - Susan was General Counsel and GM of the Philadelphia Eagles, the first and only woman to ever hold both positions. It was during those years with the Eagles that she learned firsthand the impact and benefit competitive sports teams can have on disadvantaged youth. Starting with Clark County (Las Vegas) schools, A Level Playing Field Foundation brings together retired and active players, alumni and students, sponsors and participants to create a unified support needed to provide the winning environment that can foster winning attitudes.
