UI organizes an exclusive event for the children’s hospital
Each year, one of the major events held at the University of Iowa to raise funds for the Stead Family Children’s Hospital is the Ladies’ Football Academy.
It’s an event run by Iowa football head coach Kirk Ferentz and his wife, Mary, and it was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sadly, even as the pandemic appears to be starting to subside, they’ve also decided to take another path this year.
Instead of hosting the Iowa Ladies’ Football Academy this year, according to KCRG, the Ferentze have rotated and will be leading a virtual event that will focus on exclusive previews and inside looks on the upcoming Hawkeye football season. A conversation with Coach Ferentz, a live panel of players, behind the scenes of the movie theater and a silent auction.
Register for “A Night With Hawkeye Football” on June 10th at the Iowa Ladies’ Football Academy website. The virtual event is open to everyone, but capacity will be limited so register early. The silent auction will go online this Friday, June 4. You do not have to register to participate in the auction.
According to the event website, packages include “the chance to win exclusive Iowa football packages including food and drink for 10 in the locker rooms at Kinnick Stadium with football staff, football game packages including 2 nights at the Marriott Courtyard across from the stadium Kinnick, outdoor club seating, VIP parking, a weekend for 10 at Legacy Acres Hunting Lodge in Parnell, and lots of authentic Iowa football loot!“
The Iowa Ladies’ Football Academy has raised over $ 2 million for the University of Iowa Stead Children’s Hospital.
