Bellin Health to honor area’s athletic standouts

04/30/2008

GREEN BAY — For the seventh consecutive year, Bellin Health Sports Medicine will toast area high school athletes and key contributors during the annual Night of Champions Award Banquet.
The Night of Champions – set for Sunday, May 18, in the Lambeau Field Atrium, third floor club level – spotlights individuals whose contributions to sports extend beyond athletic ability. The event focuses on athletes’ character as well as physical abilities. It also offers an opportunity to examine athletes’ commitment, academic achievements and community involvement in addition to statistics and athletic feats.

The event begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is at 6 p.m., with the program starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $30.

“The Night of Champions event awards great athletes, but more specifically, it honors great people who put their energy into the positives of athletics, all while maintaining those values that are often missing in today’s environment,” said Julie Phelps, Night of Champions event coordinator. “The event calls attention to those areas, like academics, and character, that many times just don’t get all the glitz and glamour.”

The event also honors the region’s top coaches, athletic directors and community supporters for guiding and supporting area athletes.

Award categories include Team of the Year, Coach of the Year, Athletic Director of the Year, Male Athlete of the Year and Female Athlete of the Year, among several others.
