Offshore Fishing Trip with the legendary NFL Super Bowl winning coach and NBC Sports color analyst on Football Night in America featured during live auction benefitting children in Nicaragua at this year’s Party with a Purpose.

Tony Dungy is lending a hand to vulnerable children in Nicaragua through Party with a Purpose, an annual event where TransNational Payments partners with ORPHANetwork to raise money to support nutrition, health, educational and job skills training for a community of 1,200 vulnerable children. During the event’s live auction, the highest bidder at the October 12th fundraiser will win a once-in-a-lifetime experience: an Offshore Charter Fishing Trip with Coach Dungy and his son.

Dungy, a New York Times bestselling author, NFL Hall of Famer, Super Bowl winning coach and color analyst for NBC’s Sunday night pregame show, Football Night in America, deeply believes in investing in the next generation. His family foundation is focused on providing opportunities for underserved populations in Tampa, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis.

When a Tampa-based ORPHANetwork investor approached Dungy about donating his time for the cause of helping vulnerable children in Nicaragua, he was quick to graciously accept. “Our family believes in educational, emotional and/or financial support that glorifies God so there was a natural synergy with ORPHANetwork’s Christ-centered mission of breaking cycles of poverty through health, education and jobs.”

Dick Anderson, CEO of ORPHANetwork shares, “We are honored that Coach Dungy and his family are so willing to support our children through Party with a Purpose.” Anderson adds, “This once-in-a-lifetime experience will create a lot of excitement for the event while raising serious dollars for our children in Nicaragua.”

The 8th Annual Party with a Purpose will be held at The Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows, IL on October 12th at 6pm. The event, which has raised more than 1 million dollars to transform lives in Nicaragua, is more than a fundraiser — it’s an evening where you can spend time with family and friends, dance to live music, taste delicious local cuisine, participate in thrilling auctions, win exciting raffle prizes and enjoy friendly game room competition. This year’s party promises to be the most fun yet, the event is open to all who want to experience an unforgettable Friday night while giving back to thousands of vulnerable children served by ORPHANetwork. Tickets for the party can be purchased on the Party with a Purpose website:
