Milwaukee, WI -  Wisconsin Lutheran College will honor Tony Dungy with the 2018 Divine Servant Award at a celebration on Friday, April 27, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Tickets and table reservations are available now, and the event is open to the public.

Wisconsin Lutheran College established the Divine Servant Award in 2017 as an opportunity to honor an individual who exemplifies qualities of Christian servant leadership and has exhibited Christian values throughout his or her life of service. This event also serves as an awareness and fundraising event for Wisconsin Lutheran College. The inaugural award was presented to 43rd President of the United States, the Honorable George W. Bush, at a celebration attended by 630 guests. The event raised more than $1.3 million in net revenue in the form of scholarships to help continue the mission and ministry of WLC.

“We seek to amplify our mission of preparing Christian servant leaders who will influence and change our world,” says Dr. Daniel W. Johnson, President of Wisconsin Lutheran College. “We couldn't be more privileged to recognize Tony Dungy as our featured speaker and recipient of the 2018 Divine Servant Award.”

In addition to his notable accomplishments as former Head Coach of the 2007 Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts and Football Analyst for NBC Sports, Tony Dungy is highly respected as a dedicated husband and father, best-selling author, and community leader, mentor, and advocate.

The community is invited to attend as WLC presents Tony Dungy with the Divine Servant Award during the celebration on April 27 in the Recreation Complex's Time of Grace Center at Wisconsin Lutheran College. Individual tickets are available for $350 per person, tables of ten for $3,500, or premium location tables of ten for $5,000. This amazing evening will include a pre-event reception, Tony Dungy timeline experience, three-course gourmet dinner by Bartolotta Catering, special award presentation, question and answer session with Tony Dungy, and a delectable afterglow with specialty coffee bar and live entertainment.
