Kickoff for Kids

Philanthropists and football fans come together yearly at the Dallas Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon to raise funds to meet the needs of local children. The event, held at Cowboys Stadium, benefits the Dallas Cowboys Courage House located at Happy Hill Farm. On Aug. 28, thousands of people will come together to be introduced to the 2013/2014 Cowboys team. The players, coaches and administration attend to kick off the new season at this fun event sponsored by Flowserve.

Who more fitting to steer this event than the daughter of Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones? Charlotte Jones Anderson is arguably one of the most powerful women in the NFL. She is currently the Cowboys’ executive vice president and is in charge of brand management and the charity foundation. Visit for an online interview with Charlotte about her involvement with the event and why Happy Hill Farm is the perfect beneficiary.

Happy Hill Farm was opened in 1975 with 20 students in a mobile home. Decades later, North Central Texas Academy, located on the 500-acre campus of Happy Hill Farm, has grown into a private, fully-accredited, Christian boarding and day school. Underprivileged students on scholarship, international, and local day students — all with the motivation, determination and ability to pursue higher education and success in life — study within college-preparatory environment taught from a Christian worldview.
