Colts championship reunion banquet, Nov. 19, is sellout

November 08, 1998|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

It has been four decades since the game was played, but the 40th reunion of the Baltimore Colts -- the city's first championship pro football team -- scheduled for Nov. 19 at Martin's West is a sellout.

Committee chairman Richard E. McCready said the banquet has a waiting list that will be filled if vacancies occur. Tickets are $150, and all places have been committed.

Tickets for a luncheon the next day at the Hyatt Regency Hotel for the corporate community, which includes admission to the banquet, are $5,000 for a table of 10.

All proceeds from both gatherings go to the Johns Hopkins University research program for finding a cure for ALS, known as Lou Gehrig's disease, the ailment that led to the death last year of Janice Braase, wife of former Colts defensive end Ordell Braase, whose idea it was to stage the benefit reunion.

Tickets for the banquet are to be mailed tomorrow.
