The New York Jets will host their annual Kickoff Luncheon at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday, Aug. 29.

This year the Jets will honor John Adam Kanas, chairman, president and CEO of North Fork Bank. In addition, the luncheon proceeds will benefit not one but two important charities: the New York Jets Foundation and the Alliance for Lupus Research (ALR).
Over the past seven years, the Jets and their charitable foundation have donated or contributed more than $7 million to promote youth health, fitness and education, particularly in disadvantaged communities. From fighting childhood obesity through the Generation Jets: Be Lean & Green initiative to launching a football team in a Harlem high school and urging students in the Bronx to eat right and move more, the New York Jets make investments that make a difference in the lives of others.
In addition, since 2001, the New York Jets have raised more than $5.5 million for the ALR through proceeds from this luncheon and participation in the alliance's signature fundraising program, "Walk with Us to Cure Lupus" events throughout the tri-state area.
Lupus is a life-threatening disease that affects over one million Americans each year. The ALR has one mission: to prevent, treat and cure lupus through research. To learn more about the ALR, visit www.lupusresearch.org.
