Recognized as one of Milwaukee’s elite charity events, the Vince Lombardi Award of Excellence Dinner Ball is an elegant, power-packed evening of excitement with one distinguished honoree that leaves our audience with unforgettable memories each year. More importantly, however, the Vince Lombardi Award of Excellence Dinner Ball provides significant dollars for the fight against cancer at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics throughout Wisconsin. Thanks to the tremendous generosity of our supporters, the lives of countless cancer patients have been changed.
Created in 1990, the Vince Lombardi Award of Excellence Dinner Ball was created as a means of recognizing individuals who have made a Hall of Fame contribution to sport, profession or business in a manner that exemplifies appreciation of God, country, society, family and self, not only for the sport, profession or business involved, but to the men, women and children whose lives are enhanced by emulating those standards. In short, the Vince Lombardi Award of Excellence is awarded annually at the charity dinner ball to one whom has captured the spirit of commitment and pursuit of excellence; standards which define the legendary coach Vince Lombardi and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation.
All proceeds from the Vince Lombardi Award of Excellence Dinner Ball benefit the Vince Lombardi Cancer Foundation and the Vince Lombardi Cancer Clinics throughout eastern Wisconsin.
