The Tempe Sports Authority Foundation is honoring three courageous athletes - Joe Brown, Tommy John and Tiffany Tate - at the 19th Annual Courage Awards on March 19, 2012. The awards will take place at the Marriott Buttes Resort-Kachina Ballroom, 2000 Westcourt Way in Tempe.

The evening will be filled with stories of triumph and determination and include a cocktail reception and silent auction starting at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and the program (live auction and 2012 Courage Awards ceremony) at 7 p.m.

Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are available at www.tempe-sports-authority-foundation.org or by calling (480) 940-8666.

The Tempe Sports Authority Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, established the annual prestigious Courage Awards in 1994 through the volunteer efforts of the board. The award ceremony celebrates exceptional men and women athletes who triumph over individual obstacles to rise above physical challenges or overcome significant injury to persevere and achieve their goals. These role models demonstrate heroism in the face of adversity and inspire young people nationwide.

Proceeds from the sale of sponsorships, event tickets, auction and raffle purchases will benefit many youth-oriented nonprofit organizations and provide scholarship opportunities for local students facing their own challenges that make it difficult to attend Arizona colleges.
