Luncheon of Legends

11am - 1 pm
Cummings Great Hall

Join Phoenix Art Museum for Luncheon of Legends on March 16, 2018, featuring a candid conversation between Baseball Hall-of-Famer Hank Aaron and Bud Selig, Commissioner Emeritus of Major League Baseball, along with guest emcee, Mike Wilbon of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption. Luncheon of Legends, which has historically celebrated the art of baseball, brings together sports and art enthusiasts for a special afternoon that raises funds for exhibitions and educational programs at Phoenix Art Museum. Aaron, who is considered one of the greatest players in baseball history, along with Selig, who is credited with guiding Major League Baseball to newfound popularity and success, will bring to life their experiences at the top of their prospective fields, with unique insights into what it means to be a leader and a legend.

In addition to the live conversation between speakers Aaron and Selig, the Luncheon will be emceed by highly respected sports-journalist legend Mike Wilbon, host of ESPN’s Pardon the Interruption and New York Times-best-selling author. The event will feature a ball-park inspired menu from Santa Barbara Catering, as well as beer samples donated by Four Peaks Brewing Company, based in Tempe. At the conclusion of the event, Aaron and Selig will take questions from guests and will be available for photos.

Individual tickets to Luncheon of Legends are $300 each, with all proceeds directly benefiting the Museum. Guests are also able to purchase a special $360 ticket, which includes a discounted one-year membership (for a savings of $30). Hosted table packages, which include admission for two to an exclusive meet-and-greet with Aaron, Selig, and Wilbon prior to the Luncheon, begin at $5,000 for a party of ten Luncheon guests.
