Former NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue was a speaker at this year’s St. Jude’s Legends of Charity event that happened on August 20th at the Hyatt Regency. This year’s event was a extra special one as it was also the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, the storm that tore up many Louisiana communities and residences. There were talks about how damaging the effects were on the city and to the citizens, and how they came together and put on a true show of leadership. Tagliabue discussed how the 2020 Super Bowl is going to be back in New Orleans and it will also be the 100th birthday for the NFL, and he made the announcement that he will be throwing himself into the event to make it extraordinary. .
The New Jersey native became the commissioner of the National Football League in 1989 and stayed in the job until 2006. Prior to being in that position, Tagliabue was a lawyer for the NFL and even served as the chair of Georgetown University’s board of directions for three years after he left his role as commissioner. In addition to football related things, he has been recognized for being active and working with PFLAG, a gay rights troup, and DC2024, a group attempting to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to the capital of the United States.
Tagliabue attended and spoke at this year’s St. Jude’s Legends of Charity event which happened at the end of last month. It was also the 10th anniversary of the devastation created by Hurricane Katrina, and the speakers and listeners took a moment to remember back on those days and how everyone helped out so much.
