Patrick Mannelly Award Dinner
December 9, 2023
Bernie’s Book Bank is the beneficiary and charity partner for the Patrick Mannelly Award, celebrating the best college Long Snappers in the country.
With shared values of excellence, integrity, effectiveness, teamwork and balance, both the Patrick Mannelly Award and Bernie’s Book Bank aim for the award to be recognized by the National College Football Awards Association, who recognizes 25 awards on an annual basis. Recognition will not only acknowledge the incredible college Long Snappers, but it will also provide an opportunity for national awareness of Bernie’s Book Bank, which has the potential to benefit so many children.
The 5th Annual Patrick Mannelly Award Dinner and Award Presentation will be held at Bernie’s Book Bank on December 9, 2023! Guests will enjoy dinner, drinks and a lively discussion with ESPN Chicago’s David Kaplan and other special guests. We hope you will join us! Stay tuned for ticket updates. For sponsorship inquiries, please contact our Director of Development, Nikki Bonamarte.
