Jets Host 13th Annual Kickoff Luncheon

August 29, 2013

The New York Jets hosted their 13th annual Kickoff Luncheon on Wednesday afternoon and raised $800,000 for the New York Jets Foundation and the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR).

About 700 people, including every current player and coach in the organization, a handful of Green & White alumni, the Jets Flight Crew Cheerleaders and our newest addition to the team, the Aviators Drum Line, made their way to Cipriani Wall Street’s banquet hall in New York City for the event.

“Community service is part of who we are as the New York Jets,” said Woody Johnson, the Jets chairman and CEO and co-chair of the event along with John Paulson.

Johnson founded the ALR in 1999 after his daughter was diagnosed with lupus. The autoimmune disease affects 1.5 million Americans, 90 percent of which are women. The goal of ALR, Johnson said, is to “put itself out of business,” which it will only do by finding a cure.
