RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today congratulated the Philadelphia Eagles for winning Super Bowl LII last night in Minneapolis, MN. Since the 2003 season, Lincoln has proudly been the sponsor of Lincoln Financial Field – home of the world champion Eagles.
“Like all their fans, Lincoln Financial applauds the Eagles players, coaches and staff for a well-deserved and hard-earned victory,” said Lisa M. Buckingham, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, head of Brand and Enterprise Communications. “While the Patriots put up a good fight, in the end the boys from Philly were not to be denied. Fly Eagles fly!”
The partnership between the Eagles and Lincoln Financial goes well beyond the Lincoln Financial Field sponsorship and extends to numerous community initiatives. Lincoln is a financial contributor to the Eagles Charitable Foundation and sits on its board of directors. Prior to the big game, Lincoln Financial also supported the Eagle Eye Mobile, which provides free vision screenings, eye exams and prescription glasses to under-insured and uninsured children, as it stopped at schools while traveling from Philadelphia to Minneapolis over the past two weeks.
Lincoln also is a presenting sponsor of the Eagles Autism Challenge, a one-day bike ride and family-friendly 5K run/walk on May 19, 2018, featuring Philadelphia Eagles players, alumni, coaches, executives, cheerleaders and the Eagles mascot, SWOOP. The Eagles Autism Challenge is dedicated to raising much-needed funds for innovative autism research and programs through a coalition that includes the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Drexel University, and Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health.
“While they were crowned NFL champions on the field last night, the Philadelphia Eagles organization has always been a champion in the community and Lincoln Financial is proud to be their long-standing partner,” said Buckingham.
