OKLAHOMA CITY – Deaconess Pregnancy and Adoption (DPA) announced today, Tony Dungy, a legend in the world of football as a coach, player, commentator, and proud dad of 10 children, 7 of whom are adopted, will be their speaker at their Angels of Destiny event on Thursday, May 28 at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum!

Prior to his role as an analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America, Tony spent 13 seasons as head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Tony’s teams averaged more wins in the regular season than any head coach in NFL history. He was also the first African American coach to lead his team to a championship when his Colts defeated the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XLI.  Tony himself won his first Super Bowl as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is one of only three individuals to have won the Super Bowl as both a player and a head coach.

In 2016, Dungy was selected to join the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Known for a leadership style that emphasizes decency and respect, Tony’s priorities of faith and family were always evident in his coaching and these values have been adopted by his crop of assistant coaches, many of whom have gone on to NFL head coaching positions.

Like Tony, DPA believes in decency and respect for all, and that faith and family are everything.   “Our clients come to us during an extremely vulnerable time in their lives; whether it is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, or recognizing the hope of having children biologically may never happen, and it is our privilege to get to walk with them,” states Executive Director, Heather Hails.

Tickets to the event are $150 per person and include dinner and the opportunity to hear Dungy’s story.   Reservations available online at www.deaconessadoption.org or by calling (405) 949-4200.

Monies raised at the event will be used to fund the many free services DPA provides to expectant parents, adoptive families, and children.  Sponsorships ranging from $500 – $75,000 are available.  For more information contact Debbie Davis at (405) 949-4200.  Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter at #AOD2020 to learn more about this event.

Founded in 1900, generations of Oklahomans have been transformed by our services.  DPA gives hope to expectant parents who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy and adoptive families who feel their dream of a baby is lost or believe God is calling them to a unique journey of growing their family through adoption.   Comprehensive pre- and post- adoption education and support are provided.  Because DPA views adoption as a life-long journey, not a one-time event, all services are designed to meet the needs of birth parents, adoptive families, and children throughout the life span.
