TODAY is the day! It's not too late to register!

The Council is embarking on a new campaign with 710 AM ESPN Radio, as it will sponsor ESPN's monthly 'Lunch with a Legend' at Morton's Steakhouse. The first of seven such events, which will continue through Fall, will be held TODAY, April 6, at 11 a.m. at Morton's the Steakhouse at 735 S. Figueroa St., #207, Los Angeles, CA 90017.

Besides the many ads on the radio - plus an additional 350 free spots that were also thrown in at the end - we will have signage at each event, plus a table to distribute information about camp, the shelter, our general outreach, etc.

The special legend that will be at TODAY's event will be George Bodenheimer, President of ESPN and ABC Sports, as ESPN will open the new west coast Sports Center TV studio that day.

Special guests will include Neil Everett and Stan Verrett - the Los Angeles based SportsCenter anchors who will make their debut broadcast from LA LIVE tonight. In addition, 710 ESPN's Colin Cowherd, Steve Mason and John Ireland will be hosting the event.

In addition, there will be a raffle for valuable sports memorabilia, including framed autograph photos of future Hall of Fame Dodger Manny Ramirez and Hall of Fame Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully. All proceeds will help send disadvantaged and at-risk boys and girls to the Society's Circle V Ranch Camp this summer!!!

Reservations: Charisse at 213-553-4586.
